We have really enjoyed watching the birds come to our pine cone bird feeders and our nest kit so I thought maybe we could get the birds to come a little closer and really get to watch them so we made a Window Bird feeder.
I think it came out so cute and my daughter and I just cannot wait till the birds start coming (with the other feeders we saw it takes about a week for them to find the new one).
The design I came up with is pretty simple and it was very easy to make. You can have your very own homemade bird feeder in just a few minutes.
Paint (can omit this if you want)
Kitchen knife (or a box cutter if you have one)
Small craft stick (we used a 1/8 inch thick and cut it to size)
If you want to paint yours start by doing that first. You really don’t need to but my daughter LOVES to paint so we paint everything.
Using your kitchen knife cut a rectangular hole in the front of your carton.
Now stick your knife in to the four corners and push through to the back of your carton so you can cut the same size whole in the back (see pictures).
Using your knife (or scissors) poke a hole for each suction cup on the top back of the carton (see picture)
Now poke a hole for your stick under your opening in the front and back of the milk carton.
Put your stick through both holes and glue it in place on the back. (you want this to be secure so it can support your birds)
Then suction it up on a window, and wait for your birds!
