Make this super easy birdhouse key holder that is not only functional but cute too! Add your favorite saying to the front like "home sweet home."Hi, it’s Vanessa from Tried & True and I’m back with another fun craft project! I’m the kind of person who misplaces everything and honestly, I couldn’t even tell you the number of times I’ve lost my keys.

Hopefully not any more, though! I made this super easy little Birdhouse Key Holder to help me keep track of them. Fingers crossed!

Birdhouse Key Holder

Materials:

  • Decorative Wood Birdhouse
  • Paint
  • Hook Screws
  • Small Saw Tooth Hanger

Step One. Gather the few supplies you’ll need to make your own Birdhouse Key Holder. I found this little decorative wood birdhouse in the dollar section of Target but I’ve seen them available tons of different places.

Birdhouse-Key-Holder-1Step Two. Use a pencil and paintbrush to write in the words “Home Sweet Home” on the front of the birdhouse.

Birdhouse-Key-Holder-2Step Three. If your decorative birdhouse doesn’t already have one, add a sawtooth hanger to the back of the birdhouse.

Birdhouse-Key-Holder-3Step Four. Add some more paint to the edges and roof of the birdhouse. Or if you’re artistically incline, paint some cute birds on the sides. Your options to customize are completely open!

Take a couple hook screws and insert them in the front. Depending on the strength of the wood, you may have to drill a pilot hole first. My wood was soft enough that the screws went in without too much effort

I’m really hoping that having this little birdhouse to store my keys will help me remember where they are. If all else fails, at least it’ll look super adorable hanging on my wall!
