Bugs aren’t the only creatures to invade our yards when the weather changes (thank God for that!). Where I live, there are birds chirping all around. In fact, my little guy loves to chase them, thinking he’ll be able to catch one! That hasn’t worked for him (yet), but we do have a little birdhouse in the backyard that he made with his dad. It seems to attract birds, just not when he is around. If you’re looking for some ideas on a DIY birdhouse for your yard, check out these 6 amazing creations.

3. Place Card Birdhouse

This project was done as a way to create place cards at the table for Easter (so clever!), but I think it’s a great DIY project for kids to do anytime. All you need is scrapbook paper in fun designs and some modge podge.

Check out the full tutorial for this birdhouse over at Driven by Decor.

I'm a wife, mother and everything else associated with domestic life. I can often be found hiding from my kids to sneak treats (especially ice cream). I love rainbows and naps, and I find any excuse to go to Target. When I actually make it out of the house in real clothes, I document my outfits on my fashion blog, Leather & Lip Gloss. My love for fashion also inspired me to start my own comprehensive style website, The Style Spectrum.
