10 Trendy DIY Shoe Birdhouses - Create Your Own!

From cowboy boots to last season's high heels, use any kind of shoe for this unique craft: DIY Shoe Birdhouses!

Why toss your old shoes when you can remodel them into houses for birds? Think about it: shoes are cozy, dry, and protect us against harsh weather. It’s no wonder birds take a liking to them! Learn how to give your worn shoes some purpose by reading the rest of our post below (organized by shoe type!):

Rain Boots

Due to their waterproof quality, rain boots provide the perfect shelter for birds on stormy days. Put your own creative twist on an old pair, or decorate it like this gnome rain boot birdhouse!
Rain boot birdhouses look warm and welcoming and also add plenty of personality to your garden. You might want to hang this one up; I wouldn't be surprised if someone stepped right in and ran away with it!

Another fantastic boot that will make you reconsider giving it to the birds in your backyard. Don't worry, you'll enjoy looking at this just as much as you enjoyed wearing it, if not even more!

Cowboy Boots

I doubted that I'd find something as cool as the rain boots above, but these cowboy birdhouses aren't too bad.

Between the belt and bandanna, I don't know what's cuter. What I can vouch for is how happy this shoe will make the birds. They'll have shelter, warmth, and a safe place to call home.

What more could a birdie ask for?

High-Heeled Boots 

I haven't seen this much boot accessorizing since, ever, but I certainly like it now!

The next shoe looks like something the Wicked Witch of the East would wear. But I'm sure the birds won't see it as a threat and will love taking a pit stop right on top.
