In our yard we had an old plastic birdfeeder that broken into two pieces (I think it had a “mis-adventure” between the cat and a bird).
I almost threw the pieces out but after seeing the cost of new ones in the stores I decided that I would do a little reduce/reuse/recycle.
We took the perches off which allowed the two sections to come apart completely.
We then made a cedar casing to hold each half of the old feeder. The top flap is on a hinge so that it can be filled. (a vital component).
We then put the plastic perch covers onto large nails and hammered them through the original perch openings and into the cedar back.
Holes drilled into the top allows us to hang it on the hooks.
We now have two new birdfeeders!!
Picture 1: a second plastic version that we have in our yard—I can’t wait for the sections to start coming apart on this one too!!!! :)
