To make these beauties just get a small plate or saucer, an old wine bottle, a drill, and some wire to hang it from (if you want to hang it). Drill holes at the bottom of the bottle and place the bottle on the saucer. If you’re hanging the feeder, secure the saucer onto the bottom of the bottle. Wrap some wire around the top and form a hook, fill the feeder with seed and there you go! Via thegardenroofcoop.

3. Shoe feeder:

This carton is very easily personalized, and it’s a great craft to do with kids. All you need to do is cut a few openings in the carton and add a perch if you want. You can paint it, add twigs to the top for a cute roof look, the possibilities are endless!

7. Teacup turrets:

These cute towers are very simple to make, simply find a pole or post and place the teacups and saucers on top. You can secure them with velcro, but I wouldn’t recommend nailing them because they’ll fill up with rainwater. Via RockiesCrafts

To make a DIY suet feeder, use the mesh produce bags and string them together or hanging them separately.  For a string Cheerio feeder, use yarn or twine to thread Cheerios into a string and hang them anywhere. Coat a bagel in peanut butter and roll it into a bird seed mix to make a bagel feeder.

15. Grapevine bird feeder:

These are just so beautiful! You can use an old grapevine ornament or buy one, but this feeder is definitely a must-have if you prefer the natural look. Click here for the instructions.

16. Bowl tier feeder:HANGING BOWL FEEDER

I love the multiple uses for this feeder, as well as the recycling factor. Just puncture some old take-out container and connect them with straws and yarn or twine. Birds can easily get dehydrated in the summer, so I love the water feature.


Unfortunately I couldn’t find instructions for this project, so you’ll just have to wing it. (Pun intended)

18. Glass jar bird feeder:REPURPOSED JAR FEEDER

This charming feeder is perfect for all of those lidless jars lying around the house. All you need is a jar and some wire or twine. You can find different ways of securing the jar depending on its size and shape, and have fun being creative!

19. Porch swing feeder:


This delightful little swing can be made or purchased at a local craft store. Just use popsicle sticks and glue to piece it together and you’ll have a cute little swing feeder.

20. Tire swing feeder:


You can go to your local craft store and find a mini tire fairly easily, and just use jute twine to hang it.

21. Window feeder:


I don’t think you can really make these yourself but they’re so cool I thought I’d add them anyways.

22. Gumball machine bird feeder:


You can probably find a plastic gumboil machine at a craft store or dollar store, then figure out a way to hang it and you have your very own vintage bird feeder!

23. Shovel head feeder:

If you have any old shovels or spades lying around, this is the perfect project for you! Simply remove the handles and nail them into a tree, making sure there are no sharp edges.

24. Old ladle feeder:


Sadly, the only instructions I could find for this rustic feeder are in a different language, but if you want to look anyway click here.

25. Lamp bird house:LAMP BIRD HOUSE

Just put this on a post and its straight from Narnia! Instructions at hometalk.com
