Dave Hax demonstrates how to upcycle a tin can into a birdfeeder in this video. It’s a quick and fairly simple upcycling project and the birds in your area are sure to love it and the food you put out for them! 🙂
If you don’t have anything suitable to use for the post, have a look around for a small twig or branch… try and use one that’s already come off a tree or plant! Also, if you don’t have any cord you could reuse some plastic bags and braid them into a rope.
The materials and equipment that you’ll need to make your upcycled birdfeeder are shown below.
- Tin can
- Bamboo / wooden stick or a dowel or pencil
- Heavy duty cord or rope
- Can opener
- Cutlery knife
- Safety gloves
- Small grip or clamp
- Drill with metal drill bit
Did You Know?
It can take up to 50 years for a tin can to decompose in the environment.
