The tutorial also takes you through two different festive ornaments made out of toilet paper rolls. The key is to flatten the roll and cut smaller loops out of it, letting your creative juices flow when it comes to assembling them. One of the ornaments combines the pieces into a ball, while the other assembles them into a dense snowflake. Splashes of paint and coats of glitter make the ornaments oh so splendorous, getting them ready-to-hang using strings or threads.

Last but not the least are glorious homemade snowflake ornaments that are going to adorn your Christmas tree with a touch of sparkle. Grab a ceramic dish and use a marker to draw a snowflake design on the dish with simple lines that all connect with each other. Apply some oil over the snowflake outline, further placing a looped string atop the design. All you need to do next is to trace the image with hot glue in a continuous stream, sprinkling loads of glitter on top while the design is still wet. Once the snowflake is dry, you are all set to hang it on the tree!

Decorate your space with the aforesaid projects or gift them to your loved ones, spreading some Christmas joy around!

How to Stain and Seal a Wood Pergola Sun, 18 Feb 2018 08:28:16 +0000 How to Stain and Seal a Wood PergolaIf you are building a wood pergola, you might want to consider staining and sealing the lumber before the pergola is constructed.

If you are building a wood pergola, you might want to consider staining and sealing the lumber before the pergola is constructed. This article shows products that work beautifully on a modern two-town pergola, as well as how to apply them effectively.

It should be noted here that staining and sealing a wood pergola, deck, or other outdoor structure doesn’t require two separate coats of stain and then sealant. In fact, the opposite is true. Stain isn’t like paint, in that it’s better to do two or three coats for optimum coverage. Stain penetrates into the wood and actually changes the wood itself. It must be absorbed into the wood. Anything you put on top of the stain – even another coat of stain – won’t be able to absorb into the wood like the first coat, so you’ll just end up with a slimy or tacky surface forevermore.

One thorough but sparing coat of stain + sealer is the perfect protective covering for wood surfaces. Clear sealant provides the water- and weather-proofing element that stain does, but without the UV protection. So the color of your clear-sealed wood will eventually change to a greyed-out version.

If you know what stain you want to use before the pergola is constructed, it is much easier to stain your lumber now. In this case, lay all of your boards to be stained on some scrap 2x4s or something else elevated. Be sure the ground can handle some drips; grass, dirt, or even concrete underneath will likely get a little stain on them.

Use a medium sandpaper (180-grit was used in this example) to lightly sand all sides of your pergola boards. This takes some time, but it’s important to open up the wood pores to let the stain penetrate deeply.

The rafters on this wood pergola will be a natural stain (Sikkens ProLuxe, available at our local paint store), and the frame of the pergola will be matte semi-transparent black.

Use a 4” brush and, keeping a wet edge, brush your stain evenly onto the lumber. Apply in a single thin but thorough coat along the grain, taking care to avoid brush marks. These will be visible after the stain has absorbed into the wood and dried, so the more you can do to apply an even coat of stain, the better your end result will be.

Allow the stain to dry thoroughly, probably 24-72 hours depending on your climate, temperature, and humidity.

You’ll also want to brush away drips down the side of your boards before they dry. (The actual application of stain is detailed more thoroughly later in this article with the pergola frame’s staining.) Rotate the lumber and apply stain in the same way on all four sides, allowing thorough drying between applications. When the stain has thoroughly dried on all sides of your lumber, you’re ready to install the rafters onto your wood pergola.

While there are many brands and types of wood stain, Cabot is an excellent choice available at most hardware stores. You’ll need to choose between semi-solid and solid stain. Essentially, solid stain gives an opaque look that resembles paint. Semi-solid, which is what this example uses, provides a staining color but allows the wood grain to show through. It’s less saturated than solid stain.

Use a natural brush that is proportionate to the lumber you’re staining. After stirring the stain very well, dip the bottom half of your bristles into the stain.

Apply it onto your lumber in long, even strokes. You’ll want to apply the stain in small sections at a time. Don’t overbrush. The more you brush the stain, the more likely you are going to see brush strokes after it dries, even with the semi-solid stain.

If your lumber is normal, it will likely have an imperfection or two. To minimize the appearance of these imperfections after the stain has dried, load up some stain onto your brush and dab the bristle tips into the imperfection.

After the lumber imperfection has been saturated, continue your long brush strokes down the board.

Before the stain starts to dry, stain the sides of the board to brush away any drips. This is important to do now while the stain is fresh, because if the drips are allowed to dry, they will be obvious (darker) and look odd on your pergola.

Repeat this staining process on the top and sides of all of your boards. Double check for brush strokes and/or drips or anything that doesn’t look seamless in your stain finish.

You don’t need to worry about the ends of your lumber at this point, unless you have cut your wood to size. The benefit of cutting your wood to size before installing the pergola wood is that you don’t waste any stain. The disadvantage is that you don’t have even 1/2″ of wiggle room in construction, should you need it. This example will trim the boards during construction.

Allow the stain to dry completely, at least 24 hours. Don’t let it get wet or dirty during that time, as this will significantly affect the stain finish.

When the stain has dried thoroughly, flip the boards over and repeat the process on the undersides of your lumber. Remember to stain in long, even strokes, and check for drips down the sides again.

With the stain fully absorbed and dry, you are ready to build your pergola. Of course, you can always apply stain after the pergola is built following these steps. Just keep in mind that any transition from one stain to the next (for a two-tone pergola like this one) isn’t like paint, where one coat of stain can be applied loosely or sloppily with the expectation that the alternate coat of stain will cover it up. Stain doesn’t work like paint.

Although you might be anxious to get moving on the construction of your redwood pergola, if you have the option, it’s highly recommended that you stain first. When it’s all built, you’ll be glad you did. We hope you find this article on how to stain and seal a wood pergola helpful, and that you are able to create a beautiful yard feature that will improve your outdoor quality of life for years to come.

Birds are quite appreciative of such small gestures. So even if you use recyclables or repurposed old material, you’ll definitely get a lot of winged visitors in your garden. Check out some of these brilliant DIY Homemade Bird Feeders for an easy DIY bird feeder for your backyard or windows.

Learn How to Make 69 DIY Homemade Bird Feeders Today

  1. Tin Can Feeder

We all have used food tin cans just sitting there in the recyclables bin. So, instead of throwing them away or selling it off to a scrap dealer, you can reuse them as bird feeders.

All you need to do is, smoothen out the sharp edges of the can, paint the can with bright colors, and hang it from a hook or a branch with fancy ribbons. You can also glue a short stick on the outside for the birds to sit on. Seems easy to do, doesn’t it?

  1. Tin Can Flower Feeder

We saw various upcycled tin can products, but this feeder undoubtedly takes the prize. It’s a very clever idea, using old tin cans to make flowers for your backyard or garden. Birds easily get attracted to brightly colored flowers, so using that principle to make a bird feeder, gives you an absolutely gorgeous product.

These tin cans are cut halfway and flattened into the shape of a flower. The bird seed is filled in the central portion. You can paint the cans in different colors, and hoist them on a sticks, high from the ground. It will also look amazing in your garden on a beautiful summer day.


  1. Jute Rope Feeder

This DIY Homemade Bird Feeder adds an organic and natural look to your bird feeder, quite literally. It uses an old tin can, like the ones we saw above. Make sure to blunt the edges of the metal and fold the lid so the birds won’t be hurt.

Tying a jute rope around the can will insulate the feeder for both summers and winters so that the birds can take shelter in harsh weather. It will be easier to hang the can too. You can get the jute or sisal rope in any utility shop, and for dirt low prices, so it won’t be an expensive project for your garden.

  1. Plastic Bottle Feeder

We all wonder what to do with empty plastic soda bottles. We just reuse them and throw them away. Now we can control the number of plastic bottles we throw out, by using them to create a haven for little birds.

These one-liter plastic bottles can be hung around your backyard or windows as bird feeders. It uses wooden spoons to stop the bird seed from spilling out, and the handles of the spoon to allow birds to stand.


  1. Plastic Bottle Cottage

There are so many ways you can use a plastic bottle to make a bird feeder apart from the ones suggested above. Like this bird feeder, which uses the same kind of bottles and adds a different twist to it. They made it look like a small cottage!

The bottle is painted with earthy colors. And it has a roof thatched with leaves too. If I were a bird, I’d certainly like to visit this bird feeder doubling as a birdhouse.


  1. Plastic Jug Feeder

We used an upcycled milk carton for a feeder before; now this one uses a milk jug. The jug has large squares cut on its sides. They’ve taken extra care to tape it with colored sticky tapes so the birds won’t get injured.

You can add sticks to the bird feeder, which is not really necessary, but can help birds stand and eat more easily. This upcycled bird feeder seems really neat.


  1. Hanging Bowl Feeder

This design uses upcycled take-away plastic bowls to make bird feeders. I like the 3-in-1 purpose this bird feeder uses. You can use plastic bowls of different colors, attach them with straws, and hang them in the garden.

There’s a bowl each for bird seed and water. So in harsh summers, birds can hydrate themselves easily. The third bowl works as a shelter for these birds. Seems pretty efficient, doesn’t it?


  1. Orb Feeder

How about building a bird feeder that reminds you of a spaceship? Or a UFO? It’s an easy craft idea that can add a theme to your bird feeder and make your garden or balcony look futuristic.

You can basically use old lampshades for this feeder. Stick them together and suspend it from trees. You can even use plastic fishbowls for this. The large hole will allow a lot of winged friends to party in this orb feeder. Birds will surely love it.


  1. Wine Bottle Bird Feeder

A treat for you, a treat for the birds, and a treat for the eyes of people visiting your backyard. This fancy bird feeder looks so aesthetically European, something that you can find hanging around in street cafés.

Keeping them around the bird baths in your backyard or under the cool shade of plants, can attract more birds. You can even attach small LEDs inside the wine bottles to make them look pretty in the evenings. Even if you don’t drink wine, you can use any colored glass bottles, or simply buy them from a thrift shop.


  1. The Pouring Wine Feeder

There are so many wine bottle tutorials showing us the variety of bird feeders we can make. Who knew wine bottles could be so useful, well, other than storing wine. This wine bottle is suspended upside down from a frame, and it looks like the bird seed is pouring out of the bottle.

You’ll need to build a simple wooden frame to hold the bottle in place. Then filling up the bottle with the grains and turning it upside down, will do the job for you. It’s quite simple to recreate, isn’t it?


  1. Soda Bottle Feeder

We saw some designs for plastic and wine bottles upcycled as bird feeders. You can also use a similar technique to use old soda bottles made of glass. It’s an inexpensive and simple idea, but it works wonders for a DIY bird feeder. If you can’t find a soda bottle, you can use ketchup bottles instead.


  1. Bird Feeders from Recycled Products

The best thing about making a bird feeder yourself, is the fact that you can use recyclable products from your household to make it. It’s a good way to make sure you’re not wasting resources or money. And the vintage look that it gives is just brilliant.

Like this bird feeder which uses an old license plate, some spoon holders and sardine tins. You can use old metal plates, wooden spoons, cans, and bottles. It’s really economic, and you get to try different ideas this way.


  1. Mason Jar Feeder

Mason jars have proven quite useful outside kitchens, and in backyard decorations. You can use one such mason jar as your DIY bird feeder. The best thing about mason jars is the fact that they can be crafted and modified into any unique design.

You can hang it horizontally or vertically, straight or upended, decorated or just plain normal; it is guaranteed to look good with birds flying around. Let your imagination run wild!


  1. Repurposed Jar Feeder

If you have glass jars which have been out of use, or jars which have lost their lids, you can repurpose them into a pretty bird feeder. It will look nice in your garden or your balcony and will attract a lot of birds.

The most efficient trait of glass jars, is that they are thick and won’t break on impact with supporting walls. They’ll also withhold the weight of many birds, especially if they’re suspended by a woolen yarn. So try this simple idea today.


  1. Carton Box Feeder

Tetra pack cartons are known to be sturdy and durable enough to preserve the milk and juices they preserve. If you have any spare ones in your kitchen, you can use it to make a bird feeder.

Painting the box with bright colors will attract birds as well as your guests’ attention. Using small sticks to make a stand for birds, or to make a roof for the carton, will add charm to the feeder. You can take inspiration from various designs put up on social media.


  1. Egg Carton Bird Feeder

Paper made egg cartons can prove really convenient for purposes other than holding eggs. Like this nice little bird feeder. It’s so easy to make and hang around in the gardens and balconies.

The best thing about this feeder, is that it can be done within a minute or two. Punch some holes in the corners of the carton and pull some ribbons through it. You may even paint it if you wish to. An amazing idea, isn’t it?


  1. Toilet Roll Tube Feeder

Toilet rolls are essentially needed in every household, but we end up throwing the cardboard tube away. This tube has many uses in recyclable DIY products, like this nifty bird feeder. It’s not even difficult to make! All you need to do is coat the toilet paper roll tube with peanut butter and thoroughly stick a thick coat of bird seed on it. You don’t even have to decorate the bird feeders, and they’re easy to replace too.


  1. Porch Swing Feeder

Now, this bird feeder looks really adorable. It’s a tiny porch swing, filled up with bird seed. You can either buy it from a gift or a craft shop, or make it yourself.

You can use it from most showcase items that have these kinds of swing sets, or you can get one from a doll house. If you plan on making it yourself, you can use small twigs or small wooden plywood sticks. All in all, this idea seems like it would look really neat on your porch, next to your own swing, or in a garden.


  1. Popsicle Stick Feeder

This DIY project is bringing back our favorite craft material: popsicle sticks! They’re readily available in the nearest art store. These are mini, easy to use wooden sticks which you can use to make different designs for your bird feeders.

Like the one in this picture. Looks like a miniature treehouse right? It is easy to assemble, stick and paint however you desire. Don’t hold yourself back from going a bit crafty on your new popsicle stick feeder. Let your imagination run wild!


  1. Popsicle Swing Deck

Here we have another DIY idea that uses popsicle sticks. The one we saw above was more extensive, but this one is petite and cute nonetheless. Although it’s simple, birds are sure to love swinging on this small swing made out of popsicle sticks.


  1. PVC Pipe Bird Feeder

If you have some leftover PVC pipe pieces from an old construction or a garage project, you can upcycle it as a crafty bird feeder. It holds plenty of birdseed, and you can control how much seed is released, by cutting a hole for enough spillage.

You can fix the pipe to some old plates and make a stand and a roof for the birds. PVC pipes can be easily painted with acrylic and oil paints, so you can let your kids help in on the project.


  1. Burlap Thistle Sock

This is another organic idea that you can replicate. Making a small gunny sack, or in this case, a sock, as a bird feeder. You can get burlap fabrics in any store, or you can repurpose an old grocery bag for it.

You’ll need to give it a few stitches, turn it inside out, and fill it up with the bird seed. The small holes are the burlap will give easy access to the birds to peck out seeds with their beak, and at the same time, keep the grains from spilling out.


  1. Tire Swing Feeder

Oh, this brings back a lot of childhood memories! This tire swing is actually used as a bird feeder. You can get a similar tire from toy stores quite easily, and hang them with a jute rope. The birds will appreciate the swing, and the feast that comes with it.

Although, it’s also available for purchase, you can craft it from toys, clay, and other rubber articles.


  1. Paper Plate Feeder

This simple little crafty idea is really good as a bird feeder. Since the surface of the dish is big enough, a lot of birds can feast from it. Using a disposable paper dish can make your DIY project easy.

It doesn’t need any tools or fixing, so kids can make this easy bird feeder too. Using wired cheerio as a hanging thread is a really clever trick. It definitely adds some variety to the birds’ nibble.


  1. Window Bird Feeder

This bird feeder is so minimalist and adorable. It’s made out of simply cut plywood, and has a deck to it. It has a small roof to it, and it’s suspended to the glass window with rubber suction cups.

It looks just like a birdhouse. You can build this frame yourself using wooden pieces. Or if you have an old birdhouse that has become obsolete, you can cut the entrance part of it, paint it and reuse it. The arch will give an unobstructed view of birds from the other side of the window.


  1. Log Bird Feeder

What best way to attract birds than to use trees or wooden logs for a feeder? Well, it makes sense if you use a log from your firewood or construction projects instead.

All you need to do is carve out a very small piece of log, enough to accommodate some birds. Hollowing it out from inside will allow you space to fill up the bird seed in. The birds can sit on the edge of the log and enjoy their hearty meal, feeling right at home with this Log Feeder.

  1. Clay Feeder

If you have a pottery kit in your homes, or simple playdough, you can try this simple idea for a clay bowl feeder. It’s so easy to make; you can even let your kids try their hand at simple clay art. Make holes in it to tie up some yard for hanging purposes.

Clay is quite easy to mold and paint, so you can mix up colors and try different pottery designs for your feeder too. Kids will have a ball working with clay, and will keep themselves busy with pottery inspired bird feeders.

  1. Flower Pot Feeder

If you don’t have any way to make your own clay feeder, but the idea of using clay pots appeals to you, don’t hold back. You can repurpose old flower pots or earthen clay lamps to spread a feast for the birds.

You can use a drill to make holes in the pot for the seeds to fall out. You can even make a different pattern with the holes, like the one shown in the picture. Extra tip: Use a plastic bottle cap to reduce the impact of drill on the clay and keep it from cracking.


  1. Terra Cotta Saucers

When most of your old cups have broken off, and their saucers are left obsolete and useless in your kitchen cabinet, don’t throw them out. You can instead use them as simple bird feeders. Using straw or metal hanging baskets to hold the saucer in place with glue, will be a good idea, since you wouldn’t want the saucer to tilt and spill the bird seed.

  1. Gumball Machine Feeder

You hardly get old gumballs in toy stores now. So most of them have been sold off to thrift stores or recyclables. You can buy one of those to make a cute little bird feeder for your garden.

The good thing about these machines, is their capacity to hold a lot of bird seed. You wouldn’t have to worry about refilling it time and again. Who would’ve thought using a gumball machine would be so convenient?


  1. Shovel Head Feeder

If you have a lot of gardening tools in your shed which hasn’t been used in a long time, you can repurpose them as bird feeders. You’ll need to separate the shovel heads from their wooden handles. If there’s rust on them, you can remove it easily with some tips and tricks available online.

Make sure you blunt the edges of the metal so the birds won’t get injured. Fix them on a tree trunk, and you’ll have a brilliant repurposed bird feeders for your backyard.

  1. Old Ladle Feeder

We’ve been seeing a trend of using old utensils for the purpose of feeding birds. This one is similar to the wooden spoon idea, but it’s actually an old soup ladle fixed to the wall. You can put a base to the ladle for the birds to stand on. The shiny metal will certainly attract birds to your yard or balconies.


  1. Tea Cup Feeder

This bird feeder is quite adorable. Using a ceramic or a melamine cup and saucer arrangement as a bird feeder can look really pretty with little birds sitting on it.

You can use glue to stick the cup and saucer together. If you’ve got a certain theme going on in your garden or backyard, you can use different designs for cups; Victorian, polka dotted, abstract, brightly colored, and so many more. Make sure to hang the tea cups to a strong suspender and not long ribbons, so that it won’t swing around and break.


  1. Cup and Saucer DIY Bird Feeder

We saw a cup feeder which looked like it spilled the beans. This one needs a little more craft skills as drilling through a ceramic cup and saucer is a work of patience. But the drilling is all you need to do.

The cup acts a food holder for the birds, and the saucer acts as a shelter. You can use peppy colors for the feeder by choosing different designs on your ceramic. You can also go one step further and add a cup for water.


  1. Teapot Feeder

Like a cup and saucer, you can also use an old teapot for your winged friends. It can also double as a birdhouse during harsh weathers. Sealing the spout can prevent the bird seed from falling out.

Teapots can be painted in very pretty colors, be it pastel, polka dots, or earthy colors. You can hang them around trees by their handles. It will surely add a new charm to the garden.


  1. Tea Cup Towers

If you live in a windy area, and are scared to suspend your china from a tree, you can use this alternative idea instead. The crockery won’t swing around and crash against any surface, so it’s a very safe option for both the birds and yourself.

These tea cups are placed in a saucer normally, and glued neatly. The tea cup will hold the bird seed, and the saucer will act a stand for the birds. The cups are then glued to a rod, buried in the ground. So your cups won’t break if you arrange them this way, and they’ll surely attract a lot of hungry birds too.


  1. Lego Bird Feeder

Everyone loves Lego blocks! I do too. There are so many things you can create with these colored blocks. For instance, take this Lego feeder. Seems brilliant, doesn’t it?

If you have old Lego blocks from children’s toy kits that you can spare, or if you don’t mind purchasing a basic Lego kit, you can make your very own Lego Bird Feeder. You can even build it according to your favorite or available Lego themes.


  1. Rainbow Ice Bird Feeders

This is one of my most favorite ideas from the lot. The creator of this idea stumbled across this idea by happenstance. If you live in regions with heavy snow and frost conditions, you could surely try this idea to feed your feathery friends, and add color to your snow-clad white backyard.

This is a really economic idea, and you don’t even have to create as many bird feeders. You just have to use some balloons, water, and some bright food colors. This will look quite brilliant on the snow canvas in your garden. And don’t worry, the ice doesn’t hurt the birds’ feet, so it’s a safe option.


If you’re not interested in using metal, glass or tin cans for your bird feeders, you need not worry. It’s easy to make or bake bird feeder using suet and bird seed. There are quite a lot of ideas around which use baked bird seeds, making it easier to hang them around the garden. They don’t even leave anything behind, so that’s a plus.

  1. Grapevine Suet Ball Feeder

You can easily buy a grapevine ball from a shop, and it’s not even expensive. You’ll have to pull some twigs apart to fill it with the suet, and leave it to refrigerate. You can hang it around the garden or balcony with jute or a sisal rope, and it will look completely natural.

The tutorial gives some extra tips to hold the ball in shape as the twigs are thin and don’t hold the heavy suet weight. You can even stuff the grapevine balls with cheerios if you’re not interested in using suet for the mixture.


  1. Cookie Shape Feeders

Hanging out different shapes of hardened suet will add extra beauty to your garden. You can use your cookie cutters to cut fun shapes into the suet layer. You can use a festive theme for the shapes, and it will look really pretty.

This idea is quite brilliant, and unbelievably cheap. If you don’t have bird seeds available in your area, you can use a few of your Cheerios or cereal loops.

It can hang around your windows and backyard in the summers, without any worries of breakage. You can experiment with different shapes, sizes, and colors, adding to the extra charm of a cheerio garland.


  1. Feeder Garlands

An all-inclusive food buffet for your feathered friends! Fruits, nuts, grains and all! You can use threads to hand fruit slices – birds prefer apples and oranges – to attract birds. You can also include bird seed coated pine cones and nut threads in the garland. As much as it seems convenient as a bird feed, it also proves to be a very decorative piece for your garden. You might as well end up attracting some squirrels too.


  1. Citrus Peel Feeder

Leftover citrus fruit peels can be now used as a bird feeder. When you’re done carving the fruit out for juice, you can use these halved peels to store bird feed. Using woolen yarns to make holders for the bowl will withstand the weight of birds and the feeder itself. You can hang them around your garden or balcony, and it will still look pretty and beautiful.

  1. Pine Cone Feeder

Pine cones naturally attract birds due to their strong and fresh scent. You can use them to attract hungry birds to your garden. You can pick the pine cones fallen around the trees or pluck some off the tree yourself.

Coat them up with peanut butter and stick the bird seed on it, et voila, it’s ready to be hanged in your windows or garden. So, if you’re looking for a natural bird feeder, you can definitely try this idea.


  1. Dried Apple Feeders

As mentioned above, apples are quite popular among birds. You can add fruit to their menu by including these sun-dried apples in their feeder. Apples are sticky too so that you can coat them with a thin layer of bird seed. Hang them up in your garden or balcony, and you’ll have constant visitors to your popular apple-and-grain buffet.


  1. Bread Bird Feeder

The bread goes dry and stale quickly, especially in winters. But birds still love to peck on random bread crumbs. So instead of throwing away a good loaf of bread, you can prepare a winter treat for your feathery friends.

Lather some bread with peanut butter on both sides and coat it with a neat layer of birdseed. Pull a thick wire or thread through the bread to hang it in your window or balcony. A no-waste product like this is sure to be a success.


  1. Gourd or Coconut Shell Feeder

You can use a dried gourd or an empty coconut shell to make this hanging bird feeder. This is another best out of a waste product which isn’t expensive and reduces your garbage. Drilling holes in the shell will allow you to thread a wire through it and make it easier for hanging. You won’t even have to throw the gourd seeds away as the birds will eat them up.


  1. Carved Apple Feeder

Now that we know what fruits the birds love, we can use them as a bird seed holder. Like this fancy apple holder. You can carve different shapes with some cookie cutters. You can even use pears for this feeder. Filling up the carved space with bird seeds will certainly attract more birds, and they’ll be surprised to find a juicy fruity treat with it too!


  1. The Orange Feeder

We tried a lot of bird feeders with apples; now there’s this nifty idea of keeping oranges for your winged friends. All it uses is an insulated craft wire or a spring, twisted and turned to hold the oranges.

Although it says orange feeder, you can put other fruits in this feeder too. You can cover it up with a piece of fabric to keep the squirrels away, and add some more colors to it. It’s quit an easy and charming bird feeder.


  1. Fruit and Grain Hoops

These bird feeders look like pretty charm bracelets. Sew some grapes, nuts, and grains into a thread and hang it around your garden. You can even add cheerios in them.

I like the no waste approach to this idea – using up old fruit, or nuts with worms – it just reduces the garbage by a lot. You can make multiple charm feeders and hang them around in the garden or your windows and see birds finish it up quickly. They’ll surely love the thought.


  1. Carved Pumpkin Feeder

Make your garden look special and festive in autumns with this cute pumpkin feeder. It will look especially festive with Halloween knocking on your door. So while you’re carving your jack-o-lanterns, use another pumpkin to offer festive treats to your winged visitors.

Carve the central portion of a dried or a fresh pumpkin and fill it with bird seeds. The birds will love that extra juicy taste coming from the pumpkin, and the idea will be a super duper hit among your guests too.


58. Mug Bird Feeder

This bird feeder is pretty simple to make. All you really need is a mug that you aren’t using anymore or one you think is disposable enough to be repurposed as a bird feeder. Fill it up with bird feed and milk and ready it to be hoisted by a wall or a door with a twig for the birds to perch on while feeding.

59. Little Victorian Birdhouse


This birdhouse and bird feeder is a little special in the way it looks. It is quite Victorian in its design. It not only gives the birds enough space to rest and to feed, but it also acts like a lovely little decorative piece in your backyard to have.

60. Birdhouse Paradise

This how-to is more than about just one birdhouse for one bird feeder. This is a small township on the wall designed solely for your winged friends to rest in and to feed. There are different types of feeders and houses in this birdhouse paradise.

61. Bird Wheelhouses

These wheelhouses made out of iron mesh are great for birds to both live and feed in. You can have either one or more of these wheelhouses for your tweety friends, and I’m sure they’ll appreciate the gesture!

62. Upcycled Bird Feeder

Upcycling is always fun. It does your job and saves on money and time. You are essentially recycling while giving upgrading the object’s purpose. And this bird feeder does the job gorgeously. It looks neat and will be a welcome addition to your outdoors.

63. Lamp Bird House


This little bird house is warm, cozy and pretty secure. It is spacious enough for your bird friends to fly comfortably inside, and the glass on most sides keeps the temperature adequately warm for them to feel at home.

64. Chandelier Bird Feeder

Have an old chandelier you have no use for anymore? Don’t know what to do with it other than selling it off at the junkyard? Here’s how you can help a lot of birds feed by repurposing it into a bird feeder. Sweet and simple and an odd yet creative decorative piece in your backyard to have.

65. Suet Baskets Bird Feeders

These suet baskets look adorable, and so do the little birds who feed on them. These are pretty easy to make and are very crafty to look at. Apart from being convenient feeders for neighborhood birds, these suet baskets also are quite ornamental.

66. Repurposed Bird Feeder

This is a repurposed piece of interior decor which looks more at home being a bird feeder. It has enough space for a lot of bird seed to be added and more on top for water. I’m sure the adorable little-winged creatures will like this arrangement very much!

67. Spiral Bird Feeder


This is such a beautiful bird feeder! It looks like something straight out of Alice in Wonderland. Using spiraling coil and some glass bowls, and a few ornamental jingles, this lovely bird feeder is extremely attractive, both to birds and to humans.

68. Recycled Can And Plate Feeder

This bird feeder uses a recycled trash can lid and an old partitioned plate. The partitions help you segregate different types of edibles for the birds to feed on, and not only bird seed. Plus, you can use one of the sections for water instead of food. Pretty convenient and space saving.

69. Multiple Bird Feeder Ideas

Here’s an assortment of bird feeder ideas for your perusal. Some are very simple, others a little more advanced, but all are satisfactory for your bird friends and lovely additions to your garden!

So did you find any DIY Homemade Bird Feeders ideas that were helpful? Did some ideas inspire you to try your own designs? Let us know your ideas too! Good luck with your crafty bird feeders.

Side Table; DIY a Rolling Stump Side Table Sun, 13 Aug 2017 02:28:30 +0000 Side Table; DIY a Rolling Stump Side TableVery recently we spoke about adding a hanging lounge chair into your patio. Today we are ready to talk about an equally easy –perhaps even easier—equally inexpensive DIY project, building your own rolling stump side table.]]> Side Table; DIY a Rolling Stump Side Table

Very recently we spoke about adding a hanging lounge chair into your patio. Today we are ready to talk about an equally easy –perhaps even easier—equally inexpensive DIY project, building your own rolling stump side table.

What the use of the side stable you ask? Well where can we start! This side table is even more special since we have decided to add castors. Making this side table the perfect, not to mention the most practical addition on your patio. This summer!

Even better, this side table is the easiest to make. The trick is to lock down the best tree trump for the side table. Do decide the height of the table on your own.

We started off with sanding the complete stump with a palm sander. And we resorted to the wipe-on stain cloth instead of the hassle loaded spray painting or good old varnish. We really developed a liking to it since oh god it is as easy as wiping!

We then started off with fixing the castors. Why castors? Why not! Castors are the icing on the cake that is this side table. You can easily move it on the patio as you wish. Extremely practical yeah?

If you think you need a handle you can even go for it. And if you live in rather a sunny climate we suggest that you add a protective coating to your new side table!

What do you need?


  • A tree stump (decide the height on your own)
  • A palm sander
  • Natural Oak Wipe-on Stain Cloth
  • Dark Mahogany Wipe-on Stain Cloth
  • Four Castors

How to build the Rolling Stump Side Table

Out the many gorgeous DIY projects this one is one of our favourites. Super basic, but gorgeous and super comfortable, DIY-ing the hanging lounge chair is one not to miss. Especially with the summer this is a great way to have an outdoor nap looking at your garden with delicious summer drink in your hand.

We have previously spoken about building a garden hammock. But the hanging lounge chair is even easier to build besides drilling a few holes.

Let’s start building your wonderful hanging lounge chair!

Hanging Lounge Chair; DIY a hanging lounge chair

What you need

  • Three 1.25” Oak Dowels
  • Two 5/8” Oak Dowels
  • About 20’ of ½” Rope (make sure the weight limit is at 300 lbs)
  • Canvas drop cloth

What Equipment

  • Sewing machine
  • Drill
  • Tape measure
  • Scissors
  • Stain


How to build the hanging lounge chair


  • Cut each of the 1.25” dowels to 30” long.
  • On two dowels which will be used for the seating part, mark 2” and 3.5” into the each dowel and mark each spot. Make sure the marks are at the same level otherwise you won’t be able to slide the 5/8” dowels through. If you have a dowel jig, this will be much easier.
  • Drill 5/8” holes on the 2”marks on each of the dowels. And drill 1.25” through the 3.5” holes.
  • On the third 1.25, measure out and drill only 3.5” holes.
  • Cut out a 48” x 23” piece of the canvas.
  • Along the length of the canvas, fold in ½” in and iron in place. Fold again and iron. Repeat for the other side.
  • Straight stitch twice along both of these folds.
  • Fold the top and bottom down 3 1/8” and straight stitch across the bottom of the fold.
  • Slide the 1.25” dowels (with four drill holes) through each of the canvas and put the 5/8” dowels into the holes drilled for them.

Phase Two

  • Once in place, drill a pilot hole where the dowels come together and screw them together. Make sure the screw is not too long that it comes out from the outside.
  • Tie a double knot in your rope leaving about 4” on one side of the knot. Feed the other (long) side up through the other 1.25” dowel. Then feed that rope down through the hole on the other end.
  • Tie another knot under the dowel leaving enough extra rope on the top to make loop.
  • Tie a loop into the rope. Measure to make sure it is directly above the centre of the dowel.
  • Feed both ends of the rope down through the top rung of the seat and tie a knot below the dowel. Trim the excess rope.
  • Take the leftover rope and cut two equal pieces.
  • Make a knot in one end of both ropes (leave 6 to 8” hanging down) and feed up through the bottom rung of the seat.
  • Bring these ropes up tot the top dowel and tie them around the dowel just inside of the rope form the upper rung. Hang the swing at this point so it’s easier to make sure it’s level when you are tying them in place.
  • Trim excess rope or leave it hanging.
  • Fray the ends and hang it on a hook that supports 300lbs.
