Nothing says “Hello Spring” like a darling set of pedestal birdhouses! These wooden bird feeders are made with pre-assembled houses and wood candlesticks. I got all my materials at Hobby Lobby – the houses were $4 and the candlesticks were $2, but I used a coupon so my total was less than $5 per house. I’ll link to some similar for your shopping convenience, just in case you don’t have access to a craft store.

Pedestal Birdhouse DIY


adding some hot glue to the rim of a wood candlestick


  1. Add some hot glue to the rim of your candlestick.
  2. Place the birdhouse on top and let the glue dry completely. If you want some extra strength, add more glue around the perimeter where the wood house meets the wood candlestick.
  3. Paint, if you’d like.
  4. When your glue is completely dry, you’re done!

What do you think? I personally love the natural wood of these birdhouses, but they would definitely look darling in some coordinating colors!

Happy spring!
