How To Make A Birdfeeder For Your Backyard

Ever thought about turning your backyard into the hottest dining spot in town? No, we’re not talking about barbecues for your friends—we mean a first-class birdfeeder for our feathered buddies. So let’s roll up our sleeves and get into how you can whip up a cozy little diner for the birds.

Materials You’ll Need:

  • A clean, empty plastic bottle, milk carton, or tin can
  • Scissors or a craft knife
  • Two wooden spoons or small dowels
  • String or wire for hanging
  • Birdseed mix suitable for your local bird species
  • Optional: paint or markers for decoration


  1. A plastic bottle or a milk carton works well for a basic feeder. If you’re using a bottle or carton, cut or drill holes large enough for a bird to access the seeds, but small enough to keep the seeds contained. You’ll want these about two inches from the bottom.
  2. Make holes just below the seed openings to insert the wooden spoons or dowels. These will be perchers for the bird. 
  3. Securely attach a string or wire for hanging. 
  4. Decorate your feeder for visual appeal. 
  5. Fill it with birdseed and hang it in a spot ideal for birdwatching.
  6. Remember to regularly clean and refill your feeder and enjoy!
