What to Do

No instructions needed—just decorate as the spirit moves you, so to speak! Use an outdoor paint if you plan to expose your birdhouse to the elements. Also consider decorating with natural elements that birds will enjoy—like nuts, berries, peanut butter, birdseed, straw, or dried fruits—if you’re going to put your birdhouse outside.
