I love do it yourself ideas and when I saw this on Pinterest I knew I needed a few of these new bird feeders.
I had found a starburst vine wreath on clearance and paid about $2.00 for it. I took off the flowers but you could leave them on there if you wanted. I added twine across the bottom and then placed a terra cotta saucer on top of the wreath. When doing this make sure the wreath is smaller than the saucer because you do not want it to fall through. You really do not want to glue it in place because you need to be able to dump it.
I added twine and a S hook to hang it with and VOILA another bird feeder. I found another smaller grapevine wreath on clearance that will be for one more of these. I am obsessed with birdhouses and birdfeeders.
We hung it up one evening and the next day I saw a mockingbird and the chickadees eating from it. This feeder has chicken scratch feed and black oiled sunflower seeds mixed together. When you have a variety of different seeds or nuggets you will attract more types of birds.
I often see the doves, red birds, blue jays, mockingbirds, wrens, woodpeckers and chickadees eating this seed mixture.
The sounds of nature are so relaxing and every morning the birds serenade as the sun rises and continue to sing or whistle throughout the day.
Taking care of the wildlife is what LIFE is all about.
