Birdhouse Box Bird Feeder

Birdhouse Box Bird Feeder by Dana Tatar

January is a great month to start fresh. I’m making small changes both inside and outside my home. I added a bright pop of color to my backyard with a new bird feeder. I love starting my day with a hot cup of coffee as I look out my kitchen window and observe this fun project and all the happy little birds.

I’m currently living in Virginia with my husband and two daughters. I started paper crafting about 9 years ago and have expanded from scrapbooking and now create a little of everything; including cards, tags, ATCs, arches and small gift and home decor items. I frequently find inspiration in music, poetry and pop culture. I’m an active blogger and I like to share my tips and ideas. When I’m not creating art, I enjoy baking, reading, listening to music and spending time outdoors with my family.

    • Hi Lori! I used a utility knife and a ruler as a straight edge guide to cut the plexiglass. I didn’t know the exact measurements I would need to fit the plexiglass into this box so I bought a sheet to take home. Your local hardware store should be able to help you cut plexiglass to any size you need.
