Log Bird Feeder • A log ~18” long & ~3” diameter (keep the bark on for the birds to grip) • Drill circular holes 2” & ~½” deep (fill with suet w/ seeds or mix of peanut butter, cornmeal & seeds) • Perches (if needed) Use ~¼” wooden dowel (Drill ¼” holes ½” below 2” circle.) Glue (waterproof) the dowel w/ snugly fit holes • Hang feeder from branch or roof edge overhang w/ screw eye/hook. If food slides out, attach scoop (bottle cap, 1/2 spoon) inside bottom edge of circle, use 2 nails
Find a pretty cup and saucer, glue using a waterproof heavy duty craft glue (like E6000- use proper ventilation and let dry overnight or 24 hours). Hand near your bird bath in summer and watch the birdies find their breakfast! So easy and cute.
I made this bird feeder from a juicy juice container. All I did was cut out the holes in the side (hot glue around the sharp edges) and some holes for the string (nylon) and the dowel rods. Paint it with acrylic paints that are waterproof.
Do you have cups and saucers that you no longer use? Recycle them and make this unusual bird feeder ready for your spring garden! Use Gorilla Glue Original as it is waterproof and tough enough to stand up to the elements.
