Make a Bluebird Cathedral, a Frank Lloyd Wright Wren House, an 1840s Tobacco Barn, a Victorian Flicker House--and more. Plus, use birdhouse designs as other items around the house, including a CD cabinet based on an Egyptian-themed birdhouse; a gilded grape-and-pear-motif birdhouse that's really a floor lamp; or a beautiful ex-birdhouse Distressed Double-Decker Clock. Try several versions of a simple wren house, each contributed by a top designer who started with the same basic design and created his or her own special styles.
These projects are intended to please birds and people alike. The projects use a variety of materials and techniques and can be adapted to attract a range of birds, including wrens, bluebirds, and songbirds. Styles range from from architectural models to those that mimic natural habitats.
