Hey there everyone!
Those are the sweet, sweet sounds I have been hearing every morning outside our bedroom window.
I think they are hungry, it’s been a long winter.
So I decided, I would show you how to make your own bird feeder like I just did, so you too can make your birds happy!
This was a cute surprise. I didn’t realize the bottom of the can said Seasoned Southern style.
How fitting for a bird and for living in the South!
Let’s start with the basics
and fabric swatches.
Twine rope to hang
I have a bunch of the fabric swatches left over from the Baby shower banner I made last year.
I found a pack of them at Walmart for just a few bucks.
I like to mod podge in sections as you can see. Paint the mod podge on the can
adhere the swatch, it just so happend to be the perfect size, with just a tad of trimming to be done on the bottom.
Paint over the fabric
Stencil if you so happen to choose
These individual stencils are so user friendly, just peel, stick and paint with craft paint of choice.
I then lightly sprayed the can with polyurethane seeing it will be outside.
glue the popsicle stick
Fill with birdseed and you have a one of a kind
Super cute and makes for a happy bird.
Thanks for stopping by today.
I love can crafts and you can check out my gallery of recycled cans and bottles. I have done quite a few!
Hope you follow me around!
