Strawberry Birdhouse Flower Bucket

5 Materials
$50

Easy
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.
Strawberry Birdhouse Flower Bucket
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.

    Another AWESOME idea for me to add to my fire pit. I am already working on it but California has been too hot to accomplish anything outside. Thank you. It's an extremely cute and out of the ordinary craft.
