The kids had so much fun making these cute DIY bird feeders.
I had pinned this idea from Mom Endeavors awhile back. I LOVED her idea and thought they turned out so cute. But, instead of using paint cans like she did, we used tin cans I had saved from soup, canned fruit etc.
We used both small and large cans.
We spray painted three of the cans.
And used acrylic paint with a paint brush on one of them.
Once they dried we wanted to add some more color to them. Turns out we were having fun with polka dots and ended up putting them on all four cans!
We bought one long skinny dowel and cut it in smaller pieces. Then we attached it with hot glue for the birds to sit on. We attached some ribbon and added some birdseed to the can. Now we are waiting for our little birds to come. My four year old kept going out and checking to see if they had eaten the seed yet!
My ten year old made this one all by herself. Isn’t it cute?
My grandparents are in an assisted living home and they have birds right outside of their window. So, we made one of these feeders to give to them. I think they will love it!
In the meantime, we will be looking for birds to come to our feeder. Once they do I will make sure to take some pictures and add them to this post!
