My First Birdhouse...From a Tea Pot

Have you seen those adorable little tea kettle bird houses/nest boxes floating around Pinterest?  I LOVE them and have been seriously watching the thrift stores for months for the perfect tea pot.  I finally found it last weekend and made myself this little beauty:


It really was SO simple to make this project.  I just used my favorite outdoor glue, 100% Silicone, to adhere the kettle to a piece of embellished scrap wood (pallet wood in this case), added two hooks and hung it.  Yeah, that's it!  If you want to see exactly how I did it.  Here's the video for it:


Now all we need is a nest!

  1. I almost did this with an old tea pot but didn't have a tree to hang it in. (townhome) Should be fun when the birds move in.

    1. We have a beat up old swing that has grapevines growing all over it...that's where I hung mine from. Hope you can find a spot for one, they're so much fun.

  2. How clever! I am forever collecting teapots minus lids to use as planters but that is a whole new take on my lidless teapots. Very nice.

    1. Aren't teapots fun? There's lots of fun stuff you can do with them in the garden.
