I got this pattern out of Creative Wood works & crafts magazine. Diana Thompson’s is the creator of the patterns in this month of may magazine. I have tried all her bird house patterns and just love the shape of every one of them . I decided to drill a hole in the bottom to this one and put a dowel in the hole to hold the mini 2” plant pot bird house in the plant pot dirt. I made this one of pine and painted it pretty colors. I also cut out of a one inch by one inch of a block of walnut wood and made a bird to go with it . Of course I got a pattern for the bird that came with the bird house patterns from the magazine. I also was able to use some of the scraps that fell off one of the bird houses I made and made me some mini wooden spoons for scooping up seed beads while I make jewelry wow what a bonus !! This cue little plant pot bird house is the one I am entering in the contest I hope you all like it Jeff M.

I love it! The colors are so nice and cheerful and I think it makes a wonderful accent to a plant! Great job and good luck on the contest!
