DIY Bird Feeders

April 25, 2013

Spring is coming!!  The birds are out and about, green is springing forth, and it has gotten a wee-bit warmer outside! Though, it's still pretty chilly around here if you ask me!

To make friends with the birdies in our backyard the kiddos and I made some easy diy bird feeders. Gather some supplies you probably have in the house somewhere:

toilet paper rolls
bird seed
peanut butter
string
golf tees
To prep the toilet paper roll, I punched two holes on opposites sides near the top.  

I put a generous layer of peanut butter on each roll.

The kiddos rolled the toilet paper rolls in the bird seed; well, T rolled it and A used a spoon.
To give our bird friends another place to stand, I pushed two golf tees into the sides on the rolls.

Voila!  Easy DIY bird feeders!  

Welcome to our yard, little feathered friends!!

I've had these on my to-do list for a while now. I like how you've hung the rolls so that they don't look like what they were in their "past life":-) And the golf tee idea is FANTASTIC!

We made milk carton bird feeders a few weeks ago. I love how you did them! Have you gotten any birds?

Kristina said...

Ooo! Using a milk carton is a great idea, too! And no we haven't had any birds yet!! Not sure why?! Lol!
