Needles-n-Pins Stitcheries: Upcycled Birdfeeders

Hope everyone is having a good summer so far. If you like the heat...hope you are getting lots of it....if you don't.....hope yours is cool. :)

I don't know if you are like me, but I love birds and I feed my birds year around. I have so many birds here in the summer as we have a lot of migrating birds that visit us in the summer and then they have their babies here and then.........watch out.....we have babies everywhere!! You walk out of the house and get bombarded by little babies flying around. Like my hubby says......"makes you feel like the movie The Birds!" LOL! :)

Anyway....I spend a lot of time feeding all of my little birds and with that I thought of all the different kinds of feeders there are. So I thought we would look at some upcycled bird feeders today from some great Etsy shops.....

Now this is a way to use the antique china gravy bowl that Aunt Martha left you and you never use!! :)  UpcyclingEtc has this an a few more feeders available. 

Now I don't know how many of you have the availability of getting a coconut shell, but what a great idea MyFrizzledFarm has for recycling a coconut shell. 

Hey...for all of you that have that old lamp sitting in the garage or storage here is a way to make it a bird feeder! What a great idea MeadowlarkNaturals has!

Now we can't forget our little humming bird friends. All you need is a bottle and some accessories to make a feeder just like BottleRedux shows here. 

There are so many different ideas of upcycling bird feeders. Some of them are so cute. So if you have those little feathered friend around be sure to feed them. They can bring you hours of pleasure. :)

Happy Birding!
