Bird House Design: Bottle Gourd

We decided to turn our bottle gourds into Bird Houses. This took about a year to make from seed to the final bird house build. They are easy to grow and convert into a single room bird casa with a little bit of work. Zoe painted them and I help with the parental stuff and the bird house design.

This was a great project for all of us. Any bird nest around your house will provide a safe habitat for the neighborhood birds.

For this project you will need a 2″ hole saw, a small drill bit, a drill, weather proof paint, plastic string and patience.

You can also drill a few holes in the bottom for drainage to keep help reduce flooding inside the gourd.
