DIY Teapot Birdhouse
Do you have any teapots laying around that you no longer use? If so, you may want to check out this DIY teapot birdhouse. Even if you do not have any teapots on hand, I don’t know about you, but I always see tons of them at thrift stores and yard sales for super cheap. This birdhouse is very easy to make and is super cheap as it requires very little supplies, and you can pretty much just use what you have on hand and get creative with yours. You do not have to be the same as the one I made.
First off, here is the supplies you will need to make this DIY teapot birdhouse.
1 Teapot with removable lid
1 Small piece of string (about 4 inches long)
Small piece of fabric
Hot Glue Gun
1 Hot Glue Stick
Handful of straw or grass
1 Piece of twine or string (about 12 inches long)
Take the fabric and cut out four small triangles. Small, but yet large enough that you can write one letter on. Then take the marker and write letters to spell home on each of the four triangles. After that, you will hot glue those to the center of the 4-inch piece of string (I used craft/bakers twine). Now remove the lid from the top of the teapot. Then you can glue the string banner you just made draped over the hole to the top of the teapot birdhouse. It is up to you, it can be centered like I did or you can place it more to the side if you want.
Not that you have it decorated, you can put the string in place to hang it. Simply not the two ends of the 12-inch string together. Then place it through the handle and run it back through itself so that is stays attached to the handle. Then you can choose where you want to hang it and loop the string over a branch. Add a small handful of straw or grass in the pot after you hung the teapot birdhouse.
