Strawberry Birdhouse Flower Bucket

222K Views
I put together this birdhouse flower bucket display for the entryway of my house.
I used artificial flowers since I wanted something that did not require watering and did not attract bugs.
Time: 4 Hours Cost: $50 Difficulty: Easy
Birdhouse (Home Goods)
White Tin bucket (Ikea) They also had pink, blue and steel
Strawberry Flowers (I used silk flowers because I didn't want to have to water, but real flowers can be used with minor adjustments.)
Ivy garland
Table leg & mounting bracket (Lowes)
Styrofoam wreath
Spray paint (to paint table leg)
Quikrete
Mix the cement directly in the bucket (enough to secure the leg) then center the leg. I used tape to keep the leg upright and straight. Let cement dry for a few hours.
Attach leg bracket to bottom of birdhouse.
Place Styrofoam ring in bucket and screw the birdhouse on to the table leg.
Stick flowers into Styrofoam ring and string garland around bucket and up table leg to birdhouse.
Place wherever you like.
A cheerful welcome :)

      No, I stuck a fake bird in the hole. I have birdhouses in the tree in my yard that they set up shop in.
