Quick & Easy Bird Feeder

Sunday, March 29, 2015

Hey Guys, I thought I would share a very inexpensive project that I use to make bird feeders. The thing about these feeder are they are pretty heavy duty, and I wanna say it cost like 3 or 4 dollars to make one. 


  • 2 plates, bowl and plate, coffee cup and saucer.... whatever you you wanna use is fair game. I get mine at dollar Tree or a thrift shop, lets keep it cheap! 
  • 1/4 inch piece of all thread rod... get a few feet so you'll have extra for multiple feeders.
  • 4 nuts and 4 washers to fit the all thread rod
  • You can use a piece of copper tubing to hide the rod, its really your choice.
  • Lastly I would recommend some silicon or some type of water sealant to put on the washers, once you tighten everything down. Just to keep water from leaking into the bird seed.
  • All you will need as far as specialty tools are a drill, a small hacksaw, and glass and tile drill bits to drill through the glass or porcelain. (use some water on the base of the dishware while drilling, it keeps the bit from over heating.
I am not going to go into a compleat explination of every step, becaue I feel like it's pretty self explanatory from the pictures. Although if anyone out there does need a step by step, leave a comment and I will edit the post to add the steps.

So yeah that's really it, this is super easy  project and it only take about 15 minutes to make a nice looking feeder to hang outside a window or off a deck.

Thanks for reading and as always never stop creating.

Again Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed the post!
