Cereal Box Craft DIY Who doesn’t love a good craft project? My Cereal Box Birdhouse Craft DIY should light you up with joy! First of all it is just too stinkin cute and it was lots of fun to make! In fact if you love this you might be interested in joining my  Creative Haven VIP community! You can learn more here! (it is a paid membership but it is affordable too)In March 2020, I was asked by my good friend  Melanie to be her very first Celebrity Crafter in her private group! She asked me to make something with household items and use things that most crafters would have on hand! Allow me to explain, during this time we were all in quarantine due to the Covid-19 outbreak. So most people were unable to leave their homes.So I had to think outside the box! I got my wheels turning and thought, hmmm what could I make from things I have right here in my home! My eyes were drawn to a cereal box sitting on the kitchen counter! That is it, we will do a cereal box craft! Full Video Tutorial is below.
These are the supplies you will need!
I thought you might find this photo helpful and I will list them for you below so you will know exactly what to use.
The full how to video
This Cereal Box DIY is time stamped at 16:44 seconds in this youtube video! Yes, I have a youtube channel! I hope you subscribe to my channel!
The steps to make this!
You will start by cutting your cereal box or cardboard to the shape of a house, paint it white and black. Then you will create your openings with something round. and i used my paint brush to make the doorway. Paint them black, cut slits for the popsicle sticks, tie the raffia, then add your porch to your box, I used sticks from my yard for the roof and I added a little spanish moss to the porch. Easy peasy!
Porch is optional
Remember I did add a porch to mine but you do not have to.
All Finished!
Now that it is all done you can see that all the little imperfections just add character! Turned out so cute didn’t it! By the way, I made everything you see in this photo! I am a sucker for DIY decor that is for sure and I am definitely addicted to Dollar Tree DIY’s, basically my whole house is a DIY project and they look super high end too!I hope you loved this blog post this week and you get on my newsletter list and come back again for another fun DIY project!Remember, You can shop my  ENTIRE AMAZON Favorites shop just click here! It is packed full of all the things I use, love and recommend! But as a creative myself one thing I try to do is shop affordable! My go to places locally are  DOLLAR TREE, Walmart, Michael’s, Hobby Lobby and yes I get supplies at Home Depot and Lowes too!!

    Cute idea. It would also be a great craft for kids to make gingerbread houses or a Christmas villages.

    Sooo cute and I know this is just a faux birdhouse but did u know if u put the sticks directly under the hole of a birdhouse the birds can not get to the inside. The sticks need to be set on either side of hole so birds can get in.
