    Thanks for the helpful tips, Helen, I love homemade birdhouses! They are such a great DIY project that can easily spice up your backyard. There are so many options for recyclable products that you can use as materials: milk cartons, PVC pipes, even gourds. And for birdwatchers like me, making a birdhouse is one easy, creative way to bring birds to your backyard. Keep up the good work!
