How to Make Bird Feeders


Milk Carton Meal Bird Feeder

Put those old milk cartons to good use with the Milk Carton Meal Bird Feeder.

What You'll Need:

  • Empty milk carton
  • Bird cakes
  • Hole puncher
  • String

If your yard is a little short on trees with bending branches, hang your bird cakes in special milk carton feeders.

Step 1: Make the bird cake recipe listed here.

Step 2: Instead of shaping the mixture into donuts, fill the bottom of a milk carton with the treat.

Step 3: Punch holes in the carton and run strings from corner to corner, tying them together where they meet at the top.

Step 4: Hang these treats from rain gutters or flagpoles to provide your birds a safe and delicious treat.

A few sticks are all you need to make the interesting bird feeder on the next page.
