I had a wonderful Mother’s Day working on a fun DIY project with my daughter and grandchildren. She had seen birdhouses made with two-liter soda bottles on Pinterest and brought the bottles, paint, the eye hooks…..everything for us to make them. You use one bottle for the roof and another bottle for the house. We just experimented with cutting the roofs…..they looked a little strange.
We put the birdhouse bottles on dowels and sprayed them outside before painting with the fun colors.
I always keep my flannel backed tablecloth handy for projects like this.
Everyone really had fun painting
We even put Builder Bob to work drilling the holes in the top of the lids and cutting the dowels for us. We use outside acrylic paints and then used a permanent black marker to add some details.
I’m not sure if birds will use them but they really turned out neat. Mine is orange…..my favorite color.
Then it was time for some selfie practice……this is the best of some strange photos.
Then we got Xander to take some photos……he likes weird angles……
I like this one!
Then it was time for me to get a couple photos of them…..by this time the girls had gotten bored and wandered over to see their uncle next door.
A couple of characters!!
We also had lunch at the Lighthouse just down the road, it was a wonderful day!
