You need a place for the posts to be mailed from and delivered to. Crafting a Sparrow Post mailbox is fun and easy. Be creative. A variety of containers could serve the purpose and a recent visit to the craft store revealed several options just waiting to be turned into sparrow post boxes. This is by no means inclusive of all the possibilities. Use your imagination and whatever materials you have available.
Possible materials (remember you can use whatever you have on hand):
- containers (boxes, baskets, wooden birdhouses)
- acrylic pain/brushes
- stickers & pictures
- silk or dried floral
- clips/clothes pins
- modge podge or glue
- accessories (wooden cutouts, fake bird)
Here are some samples of what we fashioned out of the above materials.
