Fash­ion this quirky bird feeder out of old ter­ra­cotta pots and a bit of twine

Bird feed­ers needn’t be ex­pen­sive. In this sim­ple project we have used three old ter­ra­cotta pots and some gar­den twine to cre­ate a quirky feeder that will at­tract a wide range of bird species. Easy to clean and re­fill, the birds will hap­pily perch on the lip of each pot to feed from within it, giv­ing you the per­fect view of your gar­den vis­i­tors.

YOU WILL NEED

Three ter­ra­cotta pots, cleaned and dried Gar­den twine Bird food, such as peanuts, seed and fat balls

2 Fill each pot to just be­low the lip with your choice of bird food. Use the central piece of twine to attach the pots to a branch from which to hang them.

1 Cut a long piece of gar­den twine and tie around all three pots to join them to­gether. Make sure there is a long central piece to hang the trio from a tree.
