Unique bird feeders are hard to buy somewhere in a specialty store or order over the Internet. Unique items can only be handmade. If you want a unique feeder but don’t know where to start, there some tips on how to make your own bird feeder, which will certainly differ from any other feeders in the world, since it will be made using your imagination.
1. Got an old snicker? It will make a great bird feeder. Leather shoes make wonderful feeders. All you have to do is nail one to a tree and put some bird food into it. Make sure the shoe is nailed vertically to allow the food to be covered. The disadvantage of this feeder is that it is not squirrel proof, so the little animals will steal the food from your birds. To avoid them, you can make a feeder for squirrels as well.
2. Unique bird feeders for sale are hard to find. So, buy some wine! Wine bottles make great unique bird feeders. All you have to do is fill them with bird food, place them on a large saucer or a plate and make some holes for the food to pour out.
