Recycled Bird House

Since Handy Hubby built the awesome sand box under our play set fort, we still had a bunch of cedar planks leftover from the privacy fence we removed to make room for our neighbors' new garage (YEAH!).

My daughter loves to work with her dad in his work shop so they decided to build a little bird feeder out of some of the cedar. It is already weathered so it really blends with the surroundings and looks old.  They used a metal bracket that we bought a while back to hang a hummingbird feeder that still lives in its box (BOO!). We hung it with some twine (not a long-term solution) from our garage in view of our kitchen sink window.

The birds seem to like the final product!

Have you made a bird feeder?  Recycled any building materials?

Hope everyone had a great long weekend!
