How To Make A Homemade Bird Feeder

bird feeders

Feeding your feathered friends does not have to be complicated nor expensive. You can create bird feeders that are easy to put together and will draw the birds to your yard. As a matter of fact you can make bird feeders from materials that you are going to throw out anyway.

 

You can make bird feeders from items in your trash! The birds will appreciate your efforts. Your feeder can be quite simple or quite elaborate it all depends on the amount of effort you want to put into the creation.

 

You can also buy bird feeders at

that are relatively inexpensive and extremely decorative, but making them can be a great family project.

 

Simple Bottle Feeder

 

You can use a 2 liter bottle (think empty soda bottle). Wash out the bottle well and cut two holes in the bottle near the center of the bottle. You can use spent disposable pen tubes ( the plastic part that houses the ink cartridge) for the perch. You simply hot glue the pen tubes into the hole of the bottle. You want to make sure that you get the tube at least half way into the bottle before you glue it so that it will be able to manage the weight of the birds.

 

You can either cut the bottom half way through to form a lid for easy fill ups or leave the bottle in tact and use the spout to fill up the bottle. Don't forget to keep the cap of the bottle and cover the holes up when you fill your feed with bird feed.

 

Use a Grapefruit

 

Cut a grapefruit in half and instead of throwing out the rind make a feeder from it! All you have to do is thread a ribbon or string through the bottom of the orange and fill it with bird seed and hang it from a tree!

 

Another great easy to make feeder starts as a milk container! A milk carton (the cardboard type) is easy to recycle into a feeder. Just cut a square into the washed out carton and fill with bird feed. Punch a hole through the top and use either a string or some wire to hang on a tree.

 

An Old Plate and a Wire Basket

 

You can use a wire plant basket. Simply use an old plate or bowl in the bottom of the basket and fill with feed. This is a great way to make a feeder that requires just about zero effort! Bird feeders are a great way to bring nature into your yard and for you to help the local wildlife.
