Four Upcycled Creations That are for the Birds!

Baby season is upon us....for birds and other creatures who call your yard home it is anyway.  Wouldn't it be nice to offer a helping hand to all those new little families?  Especially if you can add some whimsy to your yard and garden for not a lot of cash at the same time.  Check out these four super quick, cheap and upcycled pieces that grace my garden:

Just have to have one?  You will not believe how incredibly simple each one of these is to make!

1.  Seed Feeder made from a thrifted bud vase, plate and planter
2.  Hummingbird Feeder made from a wine bottle
3.  Bird Bath made from a thrifted plant pot and a decorative bowl
4.  Nest Box made from a thrifted tea kettle and a piece of pallet wood

Most of these projects required not much more than silicone adhesive to complete and are a snap to make!

Which one will you make?


  1. I have just found your blog through Reloved magazine and its great! I will be following it from now on. I also love upcycling. Feeling really inspired now by the feeders you made to get out in the garden and make a bird feeder myself. I have also been meaning to make my own butterfly feeder after seeing a tutorial on this website

    1. Welcome, Hannah. I, too, have a butterfly feeder tutorial. It's very different than the one you linked to....
