Backyard birds do not know the difference between a store-bought feeder and one that’s homemade, so why spend money? Using inexpensive materials you might already have on hand, you can make your own feeders for backyard birds. Create your own homemade pine cone and suet cake feeders or edible wildlife art by following these simple projects the whole family can do. Once you’ve hung your new creations, sit back and enjoy watching the many types of birds attracted to your yard!
