Free Wood Birdhouse Plans for Wrens

Fancy Wren BirdhouseHere are some of the free birdhouse plans we found online for building wren birdhouses. They range from simple to moderately complex to build. Every birdhouse plan on the page is designed for making a wood birdhouse. Many of them include complete instructions, drawings and patterns, but a couple of them are instructions only so they will take some imagination to build. Some things to keep in mind when you are building your wren birdhouse:

  • Avoid using a perch on the house since wrens don’t need one and other predatory birds might take advantage of it
  • The wren opening is usually 7/8 to 1 1/8 inches in diameter.
  • You can mount wren birdhouses on a pole, to a tree or hanging from a branch
  • Drill some small (1/4”) ventilation holes near the roofline, in the back or on the sides
  • Drill some small (1/4”) drainage holes in the floor of the wren house, usually one in each corner
  • Make your wren birdhouse out of exterior plywood or cedar to keep it lasting longer
  • You can paint the outside of your wren house, but it is not necessary
  • Mount your wren birdhouse 6 to 10 feet off the ground to keep them away from predators
  • Make the doorway between 1 and 6 inches off the floor
