How To Upcycle A Tin Can Into A Birdfeeder

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
  • Scissors
  • Safety gloves
  • Pliers
  • Small grip or clamp
  • Drill with metal drill bit

It can take up to 50 years for a tin can to decompose in the environment.
