From Bottle to Bird Feeder

Filed under: Recycling — Savvy Housekeeper at 7:54 am on Monday, May 10, 2010

It’s spring. The birds are so active that they wake me up every morning with their chatters (much nicer than an alarm). If you want to start feeding your birds, there’s no need to buy a bird feeder when you can make one from things around the house. For example, Family Fun Go suggests you make a bird feeder from a recycled soda bottle and old wooden spoons:

And A Home For Wild Birds suggest a bird feeder from a milk jug:

Both projects are easy and look pretty cool. And it’s a great way to re-use trash to enhance the natural world.

Thanks for giving this awesome idea. It never crossed that soda bottles can be recycled for a birdfeeder!
