We love watching birds in our backyard. We have a couple of bird feeders, but I have always wanted one of the ones that hangs on your window so we can see them up close. Well, this week we made a homemade window bird feeder, and it was so easy! No woodworking required, thanks goodness! (That isn’t my strength. I’ll take duct tape over wood any day!)
Supplies for the Homemade Bird Feeder:
Half gallon milk jug
Tape to decorate
To make it, I use an empty milk carton that had been cleaned out. Then I cut a large rectangle out of two of the opposite sides with a razor blade to make it see through.
Because I like pretty things, I decorated it with different striped colors of duct tape and washi tape.
To hang it I used a command hook and twine. I cut one hole through the jug and threaded it through the pour spout.
Hang it up and fill it with bird seed. It usually takes a few days for birds to find a new feeder, so be patient! We just hung it up yesterday, so we haven’t seen birds at it yet. I will try to snap a picture when we do, though! Right now, here is out view.
If you make your own window bird feeder, I would love to see your pictures as well! Share it and tag me #teachbesideme 🙂
