DIY Bird Feeder
What You’ll Need:
- Hiland Dairy Milk carton, quart-sized or half gallon-sized
- Spray paint
- Craft knife
- 4 bottle lids, 2 large and 2 small
- Googly eyes
- Popsicle stick
- White paper
- One-hole punch
- Sturdy string
- Hot glue gun
- Glue sticks
- Rinse carton with warm, soapy water. Allow to dry completely.
- Spray-paint the outside of the carton. Allow to dry completely.
- Using a craft knife, carefully cut out the stomach and wings of the owl.
- Using a hot glue gun, glue each smaller bottle lid inside a larger lid. Allow glue to dry completely.
- Glue the googly eyes in the small bottle lids to make the owl eyes. Allow glue to dry completely.
- Glue the eyes to the front of the owl, leaving enough space for a beak.
- Using scissors, cut a triangle from the sheet of white paper and glue it under the eyes to create the owl beak.
- Using a craft knife, slice a small slit under the stomach, long enough to slide in the Popsicle stick.
- Glue the stick in place.
- Using a one-hole punch, punch a hole at the top of the carton and thread the string to hang the bird feeder from your favorite tree.
- Add birdseed to the feeder and let the birdwatching begin.
You can paint each side of the carton a different color to brighten up the bird feeder!
