This step by step woodworking project is about wren bird house plans. If you are looking for a simple project for your kids, this birdhouse is probably the best choice, as the materials required for the job are cheap. This is a great opportunity to pass down some basic carpentry techniques to the kids. These birds have many predators, such as cats, snakes or cowbirds, therefore you have to place the birdhouse at about 8′ above the ground.

If you want to make sure the birds will come back, we recommend you to clean them after the young birds have left. In addition, repair the wooden boxes every February, to prepare them your guests. Make sure you take a look over the rest of my bird project HERE.

How to build a wren bird house

First of all, you need to build the sides for the wren bird house. Cut the components from 1×6 lumber at 8″. Use some drill bits to make holes at the top of the components. These holes will ventilate the interior of the birdhouse.
