Summer Bird Box Beach Hut Craft Idea

Try this fresh new birdhouse craft idea and bring the beach inside!

Birdhouse beach huts can be a colourful addition to any room, a great beach party favour or craft activity.

Decorating birdhouses is a great way to use up leftover craft materials from your craft box, and can be as simple or detailed as you like.

We used a Single Paper Mache Birdhouse or Bird Box 10.5×8.5x6cm to create our beach hut bird boxes, but you could use any one of our great variety of paper mache or wooden bird houses.

This craft idea would be a great family crafting activity or a way to keep kids busy and engaged during school holidays.

Birdhouse beach huts are suitable for everyone, adults and children will be delighted by these miniature hut designs.


We were inspired by a photograph of Bournemouth promenade, taken by a member of staff, and decorated our bird box beach huts in blue, purple and pink acrylic paint.

They are designed for indoor display, however they could be used in the garden as long as the sun is shining, but make sure you bring them inside before any rain!

Display your bird box beach huts together to recreate memories of your favourite beach destination!
