Flower Pot Bird House

5 Materials
I have flower pots, lots and lots of flower pots.. so I decided one day to make one into a birdhouse.
I chose a terra cotta pot drilled a 3/4 inch hole in it with a Diamond drill core bit and painted a design I like on it.
Then I measured across the top of the pot and cut a piece of plywood to pit inside the pot
I put an eye hook in the centre of the circle.
Then I mixed glue and peat moss and covered the wood.

I adhered the wood into the pot with silicone, and

My birdhouse.

    How do you get the lid off to clean out the birdhouse? Need to do that after every season.
