Project: How To Make A Bird Feeder

A bird feeder is not only easy to make but it will bring a load of new friends to your garden.

If you’re up for a summer holiday project why not create one of these tasty bird feeders and encourage a whole flock of new friends to your garden?

It’s so simple that even the littlest of fingers can make it.


  • Paper plate
  • Cardboard Tube
  • Selection of nut free seeds
  • Maple or Golden Syrup
  • String or ribbon (30 cm)


Lay your paper plate on a table and squeeze a dollop of syrup onto it. Then roll your cardboard tube in the syrup, making sure it is well covered.


Pour your seeds over the top of the tube and roll it around to make sure you have a good layer stuck to it. When you’re happy, thread the string or ribbon through the middle and use this to lift it out.


Hang your tube up outside where the birds can find it and tie the ribbon or string tightly to keep it in place. The birds will love it!
