It’s finally Spring! We were so excited we just had to partner with our friend Janette at Box Play for Kids to bring you a simple DIY carton craft you can make to welcome the season. Basically, you’ll transform a carton into the sweetest little birdfeeder ever! Thanks to Janette for the great idea.
- Box Play for Kids Pink House sticker set
- Hot glue gun
- Utility knife
- Paper plate
- Wild bird seed.
Thoroughly rinse out and dry carton. Then apply Pink House stickers.
Cut out front door. (Be sure an adult does this part.)
Use hot glue to attach the carton to a paper plate. (Again, an adult should do this part.) We had a black plate left over from a party so that’s what we used. The lip on the plate keeps seeds from rolling off.
Create a hole at the top of the carton and insert string for hanging.
Place birdseed on plate and inside Pink House carton.
Find the perfect tree in your yard and hang the DIY repurposed carton birdfeeder.
It only took a few minutes before sweet little yellow birds were flocking to our Pink House! And the pet expert was right, they do love to perch on the plate.
Try it out and let us know what you think!
