Then decorate away!
Owen buried some yummy “treasure” in the front yard next to his house for the birds to find. Reid and I worked hard on a pretzel fence we kept in place with copious amounts of creamy peanut butter.
Aren’t these little houses so cute?
That is so cute! It would be fun any time of year, really. And I'm pretty sure my 14 y/o brother would have fun with it, too. thanks for the great ideas!

How fun! We had such a blast building our gingerbread houses. We are definitely going to make these!
What a genius idea! Someday when I have kids, we will be sure to make these! 🙂
This is such an awesome idea, I am a little jealous I didn't think of it myself! 🙂 We will definitely be doing these this winter break! Thanks for the inspiration.

Too darn cute Delia. My two year old daughter has been calling our Gingerbread House a Birdhouse all season. What a great way to bring the two ideas together.
Aww, ginger-bird-houses! Those are so cute!
That is such a cute idea!! Love it!
what a great idea for kids. I never would have thought of it.

Looks so Great!
Fun project, Delia! My second thought looking at the pictures was "oh, no…the tabletop!" what finish do you have on it? it seems durable.

What a wonderful idea to combine the holidays with something thoughtful for the animals. Love it.
this is really really cute
Will the hot glue harm the birds? I wouldn’t think they would try to eat it, but maybe.?
hmm. Good question. I can’t say I know definitively but my guess is no. The glue is non-toxic and comprises such a small part of the whole bird feeder. If you are uncomfortable using hot glue, you could use royal icing?
