The birdhouse memorial urns are crafted from recycled mango wood and are a testament to the cycle of life. Our talented artisans handcraft these urns by kiln drying the wood and using a lathe. Birds flock to the birdhouse to build nests and raise their offspring in the natural cycle of life. After one’s ashes are scattered, these delightful birdhouses can be placed in a garden or on a deck and convert as a memorial to that special one. These birdhouse memorial urns become a symbol of remembrance and a permanent place to keep treasured memories alive along with providing shelter for our winged friends.
