As the weather cools down a few birds have decided to take up residence in our tall hedge and the munchkin thought it would be fabulous to create a restaurant for them to dine at when they can’t find any worms or snails, so I put on my refashionista thinking cap and raided the recycling bin!
Rinse out an empty bottle, grab your kiddo and create your own with the upcycled bird feeder tutorial!
Grab a clean plastic bottle, razor knife (or scissors), single hole punch, a chopstick and length of rope or strong yarn.
Cut out an opening from either side of the bottle in whichever shape you desire.
Punch a hole under each of the openings and insert the chopstick. Hooray! You’ve created a perfect perch!
Drill (or simply poke) a hole through the center of the bottle’s cap.
Insert your rope through the hole and knot the inside-end securely.
Grab a load of scrappy embellishing bits from your stash.
Decorate your groovy bird feeder!
Hang it up and fill with bird seed.
(and impatiently wait for the birds to show up!)
