DIY Bird Feeders with Recycled Materials
I like creating bird feeders out of recycled materials. I place them around the yard to remind me of my grandparents and to keep them out of my garden and fruit trees while they’re growing.
For this bird feeder, I glued some ribbon around a recycled can, and I made a loop to hang the bird feeder from. I added some star stickers but you could paint or decorate the can however you want.
I hot glued a small stick onto the edge of a can for a bird perch. Once that cooled, I added some bird seed to the can.
I hung the bird feeder up outside with a plant hanging hook onto a tree.
Pour some bird seed in a tea cup and saucer and place outside. You could opt to silicone the cup to the saucer to make it more secure.
Silicone a tea cup to a saucer, and then silicone the saucer to a candle holder and let that dry. Place it somewhere in your yard for the birds to enjoy.
Silicone a vintage cup and plate together and let that dry. Put bird seed on the plate, water in the cup, and set it somewhere outside.
E6000 vintage punch glasses onto a hanging tea light candle holder. Once the glue has dried, fill the glasses with bird seed and water, and hang outside.
Silicone a bent skewer to the bottom of a bowl and let that dry.
Place the skewer in a broken solar light stake, place somewhere outside, and fill with bird seed.
As always Chas I love how simple your ideas are. Your mind must always be thinking, amazing creativity. I love the bird feeders that include water as well, birds often need a water source as well.
You are so very sweet, thank you so much Leanna. I’m loving your dog toys. I’m thinking I need to make some of those as gifts this holiday season for my family that has dogs.

I always like your projects! Great up-cycle ideas.
Have a great week,
Thank you for your kind words Kippi, I appreciate it.
The birds eat in style at your place! I love the pretty little tea cup feeder. So whimsical! At our place we feed the hummingbirds. Such a source of entertainment! They yell at my husband when the feeders get empty. Bossy things!
Thanks for linking up with Creative Compulsions!
Thank you Michelle, and I need to get a humming bird feeder up at my home. They’re around here like crazy and I just love to watch them.

I love your feeder ideas. I’m a bird watcher and feeder, so I’ll be Pinning your post. Thanks for sharing on Sunday’s Best.
Thank you so much Rhonda for the Pin, and I’m thrilled you’re a bird watcher and feeder too 🙂
These are all great ideas! I like the vintage clear glass plate and cup. We had the plates growing up. I saw a set for sale somewhere recently and the cup was printed for a beer cup. Strange, as I hadn’t thought it was that style….

Thank you so much Liberty, that is one of my favorites too. I have picked up a few collections of those from thrift stores. We use them for so many different things in our home.
