She Threads A Piece Of Twine Through An Orange Peel - What It Becomes? So Adorable!
Christina Caldwell 6/13/2016
While birds aren't picky about where they eat, you want your bird feeders to be environmentally responsible and cute. Luckily, these upcycled items check a box under both categories.
An old candle holder or sconce is perfect for holding bird seed outside! No extra effort required. Just hang, add bird seed and watch the birdies flock to your yard.
Tea With The Birds
So you bought that teapot but it didn't get much use. We know a little birdie that would love it! Plug the spout and hang by the handle, then fill with bird seed.
Bottle For The Birds
Using an empty orange juice bottle and this DIY from Embracing Life's Journey, you're just steps away from a totally free bird feeder addition to your garden.
Teacup Takes Flight
Glue a teacup to a saucer, then chain it up to your favorite tree. Fill it with bird seed and have a spot of tea with the neighborhood birds. Too cute!
Biodegradable Orange Peel Feeder
This is great for camping trips! Bring nature to your area with this biodegradable DIY orange peel feeder, perfect for places you don't plan to stay permanently. Start by poking two holes. Then, string some yarn or twine through the two holes like so...
Feed The World
Add bird feed to the center and sit back while birds flock to your campsite. (Of course you'll want to take these feeders down at night to avoid confrontation with less friendly wildlife.)
Birds don't just eat bird seed. They love peanuts, too! These Slinky wreaths from Birds and Blooms are a tasty treat for birds willing to take on a challenge.
Poke two holes diagonal to each other in an old water bottle, then stick a wooden spoon through. As birds pick at the hole, the feed will come raining down onto the spoon, making for one happy birdie.
Wine Bottle Upcycle
Using scrap wood and an empty white wine bottle, blogger Kristina Plummer built this adorable, no-cost bird feeder. Get the full DIY on her website.
No Waste Feeder
A sticky concoction of bird seed and gelatin pressed into a cookie cutter makes the perfect no-waste bird feeder, as blogger Eighteen25 will show you.
Skip dumping that old chandelier. Instead, make it a beautiful addition to your yard! String it up in your favorite tree, take out any lighting fixtures and replace it with birdseed. How classy!
Toilet Paper Roll
Coat a toilet paper roll with peanut butter, then roll it in bird seed.
Skip The String
For an even more environmentally-friendly way to roll, skip adding string and put your seed roll directly on a branch.
The neighborhood birds won't believe their luck when they lay their eyes on these cute bird feeder upcycles, which can be made alone or with the kids.
