Bird feeders are a great addition to any yard or garden. They're going to attract pretty birds for you to admire, and those birds are also probably going to pollinate your garden while they grab a snack. It's a win-win.
But why go out and buy a bird feeder when you can make one yourself? These do-it-yourself projects aren't just simple; they're environmentally responsible. By reusing wine bottles, old ketchup bottles, and even a slinky you can skip the landfill and go right to upcycling.
1. Paracord wine bottle bird feeder
If you're handy with a saw, and you've got some old wine bottles laying around - this is the perfect DIY for you.
This fun and funky project by Four Oaks Crafts isn't as complicated as it looks - and it's going to be a great addition to your yard that you'll admire for years to come.

Next time you make lemonade refrain from throwing out the peel. Mother Nature Network suggests using your discarded citrus fruits to attract migrating birds to your yard.

4. Recycled shovel bird feeder
This Antique Farm House project looks like just that - something you'd find next to an old home down a back road. We love this DIY because it's upscaling, but it's also really unique and a statement piece.
5. Ketchup bottle bird feeder
Ketchup is a household staple - so you probably find yourself tossing these bottles pretty often. Next time, use this DIY by Wildlife Gadget Man to create a cute, and simple little bird feeder.
Here they've left the container clear to see the seeds - but you could always paint a design on it as well to add a pop of color.
