This is my project for Lindsay's Green Challenge.

I decided to make a birdhouse.
I started with a plastic gallon milk jug.
I covered the jug with brown grocery bag inside and outside;
and, then cut out the front opening.
I glued twigs onto the sides;
and, slapped a little green paint on the wood sides.
Then, the fun started.
I added the window.
I glued on two different types of moss, acorns,
greenery, pinecones on the outside.
Bird feathers and a little nest with eggs were place inside.
I just adore the window.
The acorns above the door will greet the birds.
It adds that needed "girly" touch.
The finished birdhouse is about
7" X 7' X 14" tall.
It is for decorative use only.
I visualize it in a bookcase, coffee table
or enclosed porch.
