Grab a teacup & make this shabby chic bird feeder in no time

Hanging a bird feeder in your backyard is a simple way to invite your animal neighbors over for an afternoon. Not only is bird watching a pleasant and relaxing activity, but inviting wild birds into your personal oasis helps keep the ecosystem healthy and naturally thriving.
Creating a bird feeder only takes minutes, and is a fun activity to invite the kids to help with. They will love seeing their new backyard best friends enjoying a snack they worked so hard to prepare. Hanging the new feeder close to a window will allow your family to check in on new guests and know when it's time to refill the feeder with seeds.
