Along with lots of exciting shoots this winter, sledding and taking full advantage of all the excess snow, I have been passing the time building dozens of birdhouses.
I am not sure exactly where the idea came from. My intention was to make no two the same, and to try to come up with my own designs.
Although I was happy with what I was coming up with, I thought it might be more fun and challenging (and cheaper!) to begin making them from found objects and things I had sitting around the house.
I should mention that I have a large collection of driftwood from local beaches.
I found that this allowed for me to be much more creative and make what I feel has a less generic look.
I had lots of old boxes that I had picked up at the South End Market over the years.
Since we are moving soon and I wasn’t going to be able to bring them along, I decided to start breaking them down and turning them in to something useful.
Most of them have lids that are able to open for cleaning.
Along with the houses, I have also started making some bird feeders.
The only thing now is, what am I going to do with all of these.
I am welcoming all suggestions.
Thanks for taking a look.
