Bird watching and DIY craft projects are two fun ways to stay occupied while spending time at home. But why not take it a step further and combine the two activities? With a little creativity, you can create a wide variety of bird feeders from common household items. And once you’re done, just sit back and see who visits for a snack.

A homemade bird feeder can be as simple or as elaborate as you wish. Just remember that some DIY bird feeders are meant to be temporary fixtures because the materials (such as cardboard) won’t hold up under inclement weather or might easily harbor mold and bacteria that can harm birds.

It’s important to monitor all of your bird feeders and clean them regularly to avoid causing harm to the wildlife you’re feeding.
