For the Birds

New neighbors are moving in up the street into that cute, one-bedroom nest up in the old elm tree. They're shy but seem nice, and you can't wait to meet the kids, so why not stop by with a small housewarming gift?

These welcoming, felted wool birdhouses are created by skilled, fair trade artisans in Kathmandu, Nepal. Crafted from hand-felted wool and hand-died woolen yarns, they make a heartwarming gift for a friend, and can literally be house-warming for your nesting neighbors. Hang them indoors from the bamboo twig on top and you have a homey accent piece, or hang them outside where birds can either make a home inside it or use the wool fibers to line their own nests. The 1.25" opening can accommodate chickadees, titmice, and bluebirds, or can be enlarged for larger species.

The birdhouses are designed for year-round outdoor use, and should maintain their structure for at least one year. Colors may begin to fade if left in direct sunlight for more than two months. Felted wool is naturally water repellent, and if it becomes soaked by rain, it will dry if left in open air and partial sun.

Sold separately.

          Comments about FELT BIRDHOUSES:

          My mother loved this. She was afraid to put it outside because it is so pretty but found that it has been durable and lasted in the winter weather. No birds have nested at this time but Spring is the nesting season and she is excited to see if birds find it an inviting homestead. It was a great gift for the Mom who has everything.

            Perfect choice for the environmentally conscious on you list. We hung it in in a very organically decorated bedroom- bringing the outdoors in -adds interest for now and will most likely move it outdoors at some point.

              This is the perfect and I do mean perfect gift for the naturalist, bird lover, textile appreciater, or person who has everything so you have a hard time figuring out what to get her or him for a gift. It's made out of recycled materials, looks absolutely charming, and will be very well-received by whoever receives it.

                Comments about FELT BIRDHOUSES:

                This seems like more of a decoration to me, I'm not sure I would use it as an actual bird house. The only reason I say this is becuase it seems delicate (but I'm not a bird expert) and too pretty to get ruined by the elements. The bird house is beautiful in person, much better looking than I even thought. Leaves are colorful and I think its well made. The string to hang it seems a little flimsy to hold it up outside. The size of it is like a DVD case.

                    This was so much nicer and attractive than I expected. I bought it for a friend who tends to like earth-tone colors and I thought it might be drab, but it is quite cheerful. I'm very excited to give this as a gift. It is also pretty big.
