I made gourd bird houses for my friends and family for Easter.
I really liked them painted just plain blue but I thought I should add a little more decorative paint to them.
The holes are just the right size for a certain type of bird I looked up online but now I can't remember. We'll see who shows up to live in them.
It was fun coming up with different designs for the houses.
These were the bird mansions. I love the squat fat one on the left. My mom gets that one.
They are pretty straightforward. Let the gourds dry. Drill a hole for the bird to enter and two holes for wire to hang it with. Dig out the dried gourd guts.
Paint the outside with exterior latex paint.
My mom had been saving gourds for me for awhile and Aaron drilled the holes for me.
Then I hung the gourds and started a bird house assembly line.
I hope everyone (the birds included) enjoys them.
