Oops. Is Father’s Day really this Sunday? How did that happen … and why am I so broke right now? Thank goodness we had all the materials we needed to make this cheap and easy, last minute Father’s Day gift – a bottle cap bird house.
I would have loved to have built our own bird house for this … but like I said, we were running short on time and cash. We picked up this great smelling cedar one from Lowe’s for just $9. We had all the other materials lying around the house.
To make your own bottle cap bird house, you will need:
– A bird house or bird house kit
– Lots of bottle caps
– A hammer
– Some nails
and that’s it. I let the kids choose their own pattern and demonstrated how to carefully nail the first cap onto the roof, then I let them have it. They love being able to do their own projects and give gifts they make with their own two hands.
I think it turned out great! I’ve been wanting to make a few of these since we moved in … 4 years ago!
We’ll pair this with a six pack of handpicked beers, these sweet printable coupons from Living Locurto, and lots of children’s art work.
Happy Father’s Day babe,
the birds are going to love you!
our little bird watchers too.
