I made this little bird house from lumber salvaged from our old deck. The copper wings are made from left over scraps of copper flashing that we used on the new deck. His wiskers are fencing tie wire!

This silly little bird house is made from recycled old deck material. The details are woodburned on, then painted and sealed. I made several more to give away as gifts to friends!

Take care,
Sue
