Upcycled bird feeder

By: Garden Gate staff
Bring in birds with this new use for an old wire hanging basket.

Upcycled bird feeder

Instead of lining and filling an old wire hanging basket, simply set in a terra-cotta saucer, sprinkle birdseed onto the surface and hang it from a tree branch to create the feeder you see at left.

Whether your saucer sits lower in the hanging basket or is closer to its rim, birds, like this white-breasted nuthatch, will still visit. A dinner or salad plate would work, too, depending on the diameter of your hanging basket.
