10 Super Simple DIY 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).

Another version of the tea cup bird feeder is to turn into a hanging bird feeder! You just need a cup and saucer, some string and some serious epoxy glue. This project is from the book – Creating The Vintage Look.
