I LOVE birds and I love the look of a cute birdhouse on my porch in the spring time. But we have an issue with some pigeons who have made their nest in my dryer vent and they won’t go away- so the pedestal birdhouse plans I came up with were not only cute, they also have a small feeder opening so the bigger pigeons won’t feel so welcome! Here is how to make it:

Materials Needed-

  • Finished birdhouses (unless you feel totally inspired to make your own!) I got these at WalMart for $3 -$4
  • Saw
  • Glue- I used Elmer’s Krazy Glue
  • Stair railing. I used 2 poles to make 3 houses
  • Stair molding (not sure if that is the right name of it!) but you’ll need 2 pieces of molding per house. I used 2 different types of molding.
  • Paint and paint brush


pedestal-birdhouse-21. Cut your stair rail to 3 different sizes.

2. Paint your birdhouses

3. Glue your rail to one piece of molding and let it dry.


4. Glue your birdhouse to the other piece of molding, then glue that to the top of the stair rail.

5. Distress the birdhouse by gently sanding off some of the paint.

When your glue is completely dry, you’re done!
