DIY Bird Feeder

Create this DIY bird feeder using garden materials to give wild birds a festive feast. Food is scarce during the winter months so supplementary feeding can help birds through the hungry gap.

OmVed’s landscape gardener John demonstrates how to do this low cost and nature-friendly DIY project.

Step 1:

Using willow or dogwood make a circle and weave together. Use wire or string to secure. Repeat to make two wreaths.

Step 2:

Using offcuts create a brace to secure the structure. Place a slat or some bark onto the base.

Step 3:

Add a hanging coconut, homemade or shop bought. Jazz up with some ivy and hang in a tree.
