Wine cork birdhouse

This very cool birdhouse was in the window at a winery we visited recently, and it's a perfect project for me. I've made cork trivets for just about everyone I know, and even after I make a wreath for the wine cellar, I'll have hundreds of corks to spare.

There were two small houses, one made from natural cork, the other from synthetic.

The corks lining the walls are cut in half lengthwise and nailed to a wooden birdhouse.



The roof shakes are slices of cork, and the perch has been carefully trimmed to fit the curve of the cork wall.


The chimney is a champagne cork.
