Make a hanging bird feeder
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

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.
