DIY Popsicle Stick Birdhouse

We have lots of beautiful birds right in our backyard so it was about time we made a bird house. Most of the items used were from the the dollar tree and I used a square tray I had from a leftover project as the base.

What you’ll need:

Line up 8 popsicle sticks close together. Glue one popsicle stick perpendicularly on top and another on the bottom for support. Repeat 3 times.

Let dry for 30 minutes.

Glue one side of the tray to one popsicle stick panel.

Let dry for 30 minutes.

Glue another popsicle stick panel onto the opposite side of the tray.

Let dry for 30 minutes.

In the meantime, Glue 2 cubes onto one side of the support popsicle sticks of the third panel.

Let dry for 30 minutes

Glue the last popsicle stick panel onto the other side of the cubes so that the panels create a right angle.

Let dry for 30 minutes.

Glue 4 cubes onto the side panels, 2 at a time. You’ll want to lay the house onto it’s side while the glue dries for 30 minutes.

Glue two 6″ dowels onto the tray. Fit the roof to determine the placement.

Let dry for 30 minutes.

Add glue onto the cube corners and glue the 8″ cut dowels.

Let dry for 30 minutes.

Add more glue on top of the the cubes, especially at the corners.

Fit the roof and gently press down on the areas the roof touches the cubes.

Let dry over night.

You can paint or decorate the birdhouse or leave it as is for a minimalist look. When you’re done, tie string around the dowel ends and cut string to length.

Happy bird watching!
