WYLTC: Bird House Tutorial
Grab your gorilla glue and glue the pieces together. I started by gluing the sides to the back. Let's talk about why I am using gorilla glue on the project. The wood is thin... if I air gun a nail into it it will crack. Gorilla glue works great for me. If your working with thicker wood (my measurements won't work for you) go ahead and use nails.
A tip about gorilla glue....at first it's slippy slidy. If you wait a few moments the glue starts to thicken and you can finalize where you want your piece. After you get those side pieces on add the front. Let glue dry.
Meanwhile you can get your roof gluing....Let dry for a few minutes.
Glue roof to house. Let house fully dry.
I grabbed a chair leg and a couple of castines from Lowes to put my house on. You could also possibly use a wooden candlestick or go down to goodwill and paint up some metal candlesticks.
Check back Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday to see what the other WYLTC gals have made. I've seen their stuff and it's cute! Friday we will start a linky party on the WYLTC blog for anything "bird" crafty-like stuff you have made!
