We have rounded up some really great DIY Bird Feeder Crafts that we think you are going to love. Gather the kids around and make these fun projects. Then you can watch as the birds flock to your feeders. How many different kinds can you count?
Remember that once you start feeding the birds, they may come to rely on that food (especially in colder months). Maybe you could make it a fun family activity to check the feeders and refill them a few times a week!
DIY Bird Feeder Crafts
These do-it-yourself bird feeders are so beautiful, colorful, and unique. Pick out your favorite (or favorites) and start crafting. You may even have the supplies you need for some of these on hand already.
These are so simple to make, but the birds love them. Make up a bunch of them and hang them all over your trees. You can almost see the joy on the birds’ faces.
Upcycle an old tin can into a rustic and functional bird feeder. The small perch helps keep squirrels and other larger animals at bay (although if your squirrels are anything like ours, they always seem to find a way!).
Simple popsicle stickers and some twine are turned into an adorable bird feeder your kids will love making.
Want something a little more “grown up” looking? Grab some cups and plates from the thrift shop and turn them into a cute and colorful feeder.
This one is a classic. It’s a great way to use up some of those pine cones all over your backyard too.
Save your old wine bottles and you can turn them into these pretty bird feeders. These would make a great gift too.
No pine cones? No problem. Use a toilet paper roll instead.
Reuse a milk or juice carton and turn it into a colorful bird feeder. This one is decorated with Washi tape!
Another version of the tin can feeder – we love that this one looks like a flower. So pretty!
Using an old plate and bowl, you can make a great bird feeder that is squirrel resistant. The birds will love the bit of water that gathers on top of the plate and the fact that it helps keep their food sheltered and dry.
Another take on the upcycled mug – we love how they hung this up with one of those sturdy clips!
Try this teacup and saucer bird feeder for a more delicate look in your garden. So pretty!
How clever are these? They’re so easy to make but still fully functional for your backyard friends.
Another brilliant idea. The holes in the pot allow for seed dispensing and it holds quite a few birds at once.
This one is adorable. It’s so simple but adds that lovely touch of color you and the birds will love.
Those wicker paper plate holders have a new purpose! They’re ideal for making some simple bird feeders.
This one attaches to your window so you can watch the birds even from within the comfort of your home.
Save those orange peels. Scoop out and eat the orange but then you can use the peel as a bird feeder. So fun!
We love this multi-bird idea. It’s a cute and cheerful addition to your yard.
Get out the paints and an old cereal or cracker box and let the kids go wild decorating their own bird feeders!
Another way to make bird feeders from those pretty tea cups and saucers – these stick in the ground instead of hanging in a tree.
Aren’t these great? So many fun options you and your kids can make for your fine feathered friends.
