Easy-Green-Board-Book-Birdhouses

Want a book to make birdhouses? You can use the jacket as the roof and cut the housing from the inside. Fun and simple project!


I found the bird houses on Daily Danny – an eco blog from green living expert Danny Seo – and it reminded me of a funny story. You see, I LOVED The Fox & hound, when I was a kid.

ordered So much that my mom me a personalized Fox & dog story, where the printer puts the child’s (my) name in the text (see an example of what I’m talking about here).
The problem is that I thought the book was really about me – someone had written it specifically about yours truly. My best friend Stephani’s name was also there, so I was sure!
I think I was a very literal child. Anyhoo, you see this Fox & dog book-bird house brings back it all. And it makes me smile.
Unfortunately, the posts are no longer available, so that you’ll have to use this photo for inspiration. But what I would do to make it decoupage is a regular bird feeder with the pages of the book and then add a book to the top!
In fact, this is what Danny said about him (he has it originally): “Use the jacket as the roof and cut the housing from the inside.” Sounds simple enough.
It would be very fun to do, a winter-themed Board book birdhouses for this time of year, or even for a holiday.
