minimalist birdhouse

inspired by the modern birdhouse we talked about a few months back, d*s reader courtney of two straight lines decided to create her own version, using eco (and bird) friendly materials. and to be honest, i like hers better! she used a found gourd that she painted with non-toxic paint and used little twigs as the perch. couldn't be cuter if she tried. [thanks, courtney!]

I love this, wish I had a garden! IT reminds me of a retro cushion I nearly bought last night from Etsy.

How did she hollow the gourd out?

I have made these for gifts. Buy the gourds at the pumpkin farm, keep them in a cool place like your basement for several weeks to dry out(just in time for Christmas!). When you can shake it and hear the dry seeds inside, drill a hole in it and pour out the seeds. if you sand it and spray varnish it, you will be amazed - it will look like beautiful burled wood.
