  • Step 1

    Paint your cardboard roll using watercolour paint. Allow to dry.

  • Step 2

    Glue an oval branch offcut to the bottom of the cylinder to represent a door and use a marker to add a door handle.

  • Step 3

    Glue two small driftwood branches on to the sides of the cylinder.

  • Clever Tip

    Although normal PVA glue will work, we recommend using a hot glue gun as it is quicker and simpler to attach the pieces. Adult assistance required.

  • Step 4

    To create the roof trace a circle onto the cover paper using a dinner plate or something of similar size, and then cut it out. Cut the circle into two pieces. One slightly larger than the other.

  • Clever Tip

    Your main piece should be slightly smaller than two thirds of the circle.

  • Step 5

    Cover the larger piece with the spider mesh.

  • Step 6

    Roll your roof into a cone shape. Attach with tape.

  • Step 7

    Glue the cone onto the birdhouse and decorate the branches with foam bird stickers. Your beautiful birdhouse is complete!
