I just saw this great idea for a Homemade Bird Feeder in the September issue of Family Fun Magazine (I love this magazine!!). This Bottle Bird Feeder is easy to make and fun for the kids to watch as birds come to dine!
First find an empty plastic bottle, yarn, razor blade, funnel, wooden spoons, and bird seed. Optional: add some paint or stickers to your bottle for a more fancy look.
With your razor blade, carefully carve a hole on one side of the bottle and on the other side to match. I only carved it into a dome shape and let the flap hang out. You can add another set of holes for more birds to perch.
Next, add your wooden spoons to each hole. Set the spoons in all the way so that the spoon end can catch some seed.
Now take the funnel and place it up top and pour in your bird seed. Some may come sprinkling out the spoon holes, but not too much.
Add a yarn tie at the top so you can attach it to a tree, or a place of your choosing. Now replace the cap and you are set to go.
Have fun feeding the birds. What other birdy ideas do you have?
