4. Mason jar bird feeder
This bird feeder definitely has a unique look. The box surrounding the mason jar gives this feeder a rustic vibe, allowing it to perfectly blend in with the other plants and trees in your garden. The best part? As the birds peck away at the seed that has already left the mason jar, more will spill out, saving you from constantly having to refill the feeder. Get the full tutorial here.
