Upcycling: bird feeder

I fell in love with these ceramic birds when I saw them at the 99₵ store. I bought three but I regret not buying the whole shelf. I can think of a lot of cute projects for these little guys.

The first project that came to mind was a bird feeder. I decided to use sisal twine to hang the feeder and simply hot glued the twine to the bottom of a thrift store plate. Neatness didn’t count since it wouldn’t show and I wanted it to hold.
Note the big blobs of glue.

Then I attached my bird and hung the bird feeder in our white birch tree. I was so excited about this project, I forgot to buy bird seed.

I like it – I hope the birds do too.


  1. Aw, I'm such a bird fanatic. Love this idea!

  2. Thank you for submitting this project to Dollar Store Crafts! I will be posting about it soon - look for it to go up sometime next week! :)
