Inspired by my favorite red barn!

Supplies I Used:

How I Made It:

I had to paint my birdhouse red if I wanted it to look like a barn, so of course I used red paint!

I laid it on its side to keep as much paint as possible from getting on the roof.

As you can see, I got some red paint on the roof where I didn’t want it.  So I painted a coat of Dixie Belle’s BOSS product on it (Stands for Blocks Odors, Stains, Stops Bleed thru!).

It worked like a charm!

For the weathervane, my husband had the genius idea to glue a little bolt toward the top of the pole so it would stick up from the roof when I drilled a hole in the top.

I just slid the pole into the hole and the bolt kept it at the right height.

To hang it on the fence, my husband screwed two L brackets onto the fence, set the birdhouse on it, and put two more screws underneath.

It’s hanging right by the Photo Frame Bird Nest Helper.  I hope that makes it easy for the birds to grab pieces of yarn or hay and make a nest in it.

It remains to be seen whether any bird will actually use it, but here’s hoping!

*Note:  May 5th is the Global Big Day for”birders.”  You look for birds and report what you find at eBird.org in a 24-hour quest to collectively record as many bird species as possible across the world.  I encourage you to join in!
