BIRD HOUSE

This Birdhouse bring memories back of when my son was younger and in the Cub Scouts. I was their leader at the time and I found this project off the internet somewhere. For many years I wanted to make another one and I finally set time aside to share it with you my friends.
Our "Beaned" Birdhouse 
It is covered with red beans, chick peas and split peas.

It is gorgeous in real life, the photos do not seem to do justice.
I added some jewels for the bling we all love.
You can cover these inexpensive birdhouses with anything you like.

Have a beautiful weekend you all.

  2. Pretty. Do the birds/squirrels/critters eat the beans off of it or leave them alone?
