10 Super Simple DY Bird Feeders For Spring Time!
It’s almost Summer, officially… and I always get very excited when the sun comes out! I can’t wait to hear the birds singing and I would really love to make some bird feeders but I have cats.
All my family have cats so I can’t make a bird feeder to hang anywhere! I don’t want to lure the poor critters to their death!
I hope you will pick up the torch on my behalf and make some pretty bird feeders or even butterfly feeders (that’s the bonus by the way :p).
Recycled Tin Can Bird Feeder
How fabulously simple is this bird feeder?! All you need is a tin can, some string like this stuff, yarn or pretty bakers twine like this* for stringing up, a little paint and some of this duct tape in a million different colors!*
You can see this great tutorial over at momtastic.
Vintage Tea Cups & Candle Sticks
These teacup bird feeders attached to old glassware is tres impressive!
I think I would be too afraid to use vintage glassware in case it was something valuable.
Amanda from Kaleidoscope of Color did an excellent job.
Popsicle Sticks Galore!
If you have a lot of these lolly sticks (popsicle sticks)*, you could make a bird feeder just like this Lil guy!
