how to mount bird house to pole?

Hi all, I've always been all thumbs with woodworking. So I struggle with every project. I can't see something until I see it's done either by me or someone else so I need detailed directions most of the time.
I recently purchased a purple martin bird house through ebay. It's rectangular shape is 30 1/4" x 18 1/4" according to the person who built it. I happen to have a length of 2"od pipe I'd like to use to mount the house on but I don't have the knowledge on how to do it. I thought about using plywood with a 2" hole in the middle, but don't know how I would secure it to the pole. Can any one give me some idea's either on this thought or a better way?
