DIY Fabric Bird Houses

How adorable are these! Instructions and a pattern for how to make these pretty fabric-covered birdhouses. Hang them on the wall, display them on the mantle – or maybe even make mini ones for a mobile. These look pretty where ever you decide to use them – although they have to be kept indoors which is a shame for the birds 🙂


You don’t even need to worry if you can’t sew. These look great with big uneven and rustic stitching, so neatness isn’t essential.
