Toad House

I love making toad houses.  Many years ago, I made one using acorn tops.  I sat it in my garden and didn’t see any toads, so I thought it was just for fun and toads don’t actually use them.  A few years later, there was a broken flower pot sitting in my garden and when I picked it up there was a huge toad inside.  I thought that was so cute!  I covered him back up and didn’t disturb him again.  This year I made one using river rocks.  I hope my toad friend enjoys this one!

Many different kinds of natural materials can be hot glued onto a flower pot.  Or you could make it simple and just use an old broken pot and prop it up somehow.  I really have fun making these look nice and sitting them around my garden.

Q: What’s a toads favorite flower? A croakus!

  1. I love this! I have a scrubby patch in my yard where bunnies live. I want to clear it up but not ruin all their nests. I wish I could make bunny houses.

      Thank you 🙂 They would probably just take up residence in a different part of the yard.

  2. Oh my gosh that is so cute! I don’t have any toads, but now I want to make a house. I wonder if a bird or a lizard would use it! 😊😊💚

  4. This is such a cool idea Tanya. We have desert toads here and they can get pretty big. I might be weird but I always thought toads and frogs were kind of cute. It looks like they are always smiling to me. I can’t wait to get started on my fairy garden. I want to make a stone house with an old milk carton. Sadly here in the city we don’t get toads and frogs unless you buy one from the pet stores that is. Cute little house, thanks for sharing.
