How do you make a birdhouse out of recycled materials? The hole should be about 2/3 of the way up the milk jug. Punch a small hole into the bottle about an inch below the hole you cut and insert a stick or wooden dowel to make a perch for the birds. Tie a string around the handle in a loop and hang the milk jug birdhouse in a tree or other high place around your home.
