Spotted: DIY Bird Feeder from a Glass Soda Bottle

Got a glass soda bottle in your recycle bin? Fish it out and make a DIY bird feeder for your garden!

I try to avoid refined sugar, but I do have a weakness for fancy sodapop sometimes as a treat. Give me a ginger beer or tonic water in a glass bottle with a vintagey label, and I’m a happy lady. I always feel bad tossing those pretty bottles in the recycle bin, so I was happy to run across a tutorial at Bird & Blooms for turning a glass soda bottle into a DIY bird feeder!

Here’s what you need to make your own DIY bird feeder:

  • glass soda bottle (Save the cap! You’ll need it!)
  • 1/4-in. threaded steel rod, 12 in. long
  • 7-1/4 x 7-1/2-in. turnbuckle with two eyebolts
  • Loctite glue
  • chicken feeder base
  • washer
  • 1/4-in. threaded wing nut
  • G-hook
  • 1-in. diamond drill bit
  • 1/2-in. regular twist drill bit
