Dishware can be used to make a bird feeder. In fact, you can even make a bird feeder out of dollar store dishes. The best part about dollar store dishes is that they are very cheap, and if you know how to use them, you can make a bird feeder for pennies! Here are some tips:
First, you should use tissue paper rolls. These make great feeders because you don’t have to assemble them horizontally. You can also use stray branches to make perches for birds. This way, you can feed four birds with just one feeder! You can also use old kitchen utensils, florist’s wire, and suction cups. Once you’ve finished, you’re ready to hang your new feeder outside and watch the birds come to you!
To hang the bird feeder, you can use plastic lanyard lace. Tie a lanyard around the dish from the bottom to hang it. You can hang the bird feeder from a tree branch, post, or even a fence. Remember to hang it somewhere where it’s not exposed to wind, so it won’t be blown over. You should also be careful not to hang the feeder in a windy location, as it may crack.
One of my favorite upcycled bird feeders is a gumball machine. It’s red, and is probably sitting on a pedestal. Remove the metal door where the gumballs launch. Then, add a perch or platform to it. This is a great way to recycle dishware while keeping it upcycled. It’s sure to impress the birds and save you a couple of dollars in the process.
Another great way to recycle cheap crockery is by making a bird feeder out of coffee mugs. You can use a coffee cup and saucer for this, or use a standard coffee mug and saucer. You’ll need a day or two for your creation to dry. You can print a bird feeder design on your mug, and use it as a bird feeder.
A simple birdbath made from old lamp parts is another inexpensive and easy way to recycle dollar store dishware. Look for an old lamp at a resale shop or thrift store, and paint the base with the color of your choice. Then fill the base with water to attract the birds! Your birds will love this stylish and elegant birdbath! When you make a bird feeder out of dollar store dishware, the possibilities are endless!
