Repurposed ~ Boots To Bird Houses

A few years ago my sons, my husband & I made these super cool bird houses, using my boy's old rubber boots.

I came across a few of the photos today. It reminded me of that wonderful day, when they were so much younger!

We used:
2 pairs of old rubber boots.
A sharp knife (to cut the door holes).
Scrap Wood (roof).
Bolts (perch).

My husband did all the 'Grown Up' work, and the twins had so much fun helping put them together!
