DIY Camper Birdhouses
Painting a birdhouse is so easy and it will leave you with something that will look great in your yard!
- Camper Birdhouse get it from Michaels or find another unfinished wood birdhouse
- Paint you need a good quality outdoor paint (two of my favorites are Outdoor Living and Patio Paint)
- Drill if no hole for hanging
- Painter's tape optional
- Sandpaper optional
Sand any rough edges that you find on your birdhouse and clean the surface well. Cover any areas you don't want painted with painter's tape if desired. Then add your first color with a paintbrush. You may need multiple coats of paint to get good coverage. Just be sure to let dry in between coats.
Add your second color (or even a third color if you wish) to the birdhouse with a paintbrush. Again, you may need more than one coat and you want to let this dry in between coats.
If your birdhouse does NOT come with a hanger, you will need to drill a hole in the top. Sand away the rough edges after drilling.
Then thread the rope through the hole for hanging.
Once dry, you can hang your birdhouse outdoors. Want extra protection? You can also use a sealer over the top to protect your paint. Try a clear brush on or spray sealer if you want to add this step.
