Today I am sharing with you my bird house key hook tutorial that I did for Heart Home Magazine. So, if you missed it, here it is...

- Rolls of Japanese washi tape
- PVA glue
- 2 screws
- Paint brush
- Craft knife
- Drill / hammer
Bird house key hooks, how to
Drill small hole in top of wooden perch and lightly tap picture hook into drilled hole. Paint house and hook with white paint, and leave to dry.
Starting on the outside edge of the roof, carefully stick lines of masking tape to roof. Tuck tape under roof and trim off any excess. Starting at the bottom of the house, stick lines of masking tape on front of house.
Cover entire front of house in masking tape and trim off any excess. Cut lines into the masking tape where it covers the hole and press masking tape through so the hole is exposed. Cover sides of house in masking tape and trim off any excess.
Cover base in masking tape and trim off any excess. Coat house with PVA glue in sections and leave to dry - this ensures that they do not stick to the surface you are drying them on.
Paint wooden board in white paint and drill two mounting holes, one at each side. Carefully glue houses to wooden board using PVA wood glue and leave to dry. Screw board to wall and hang keys!
