Halloween is a great time of year to get creative in the garden. Why not have a go at making this Witches Hat bird feeder for your garden birds. Providing food for garden birds is a great way to help wildlife in your garden.

What You Need:

Monster Beaker (£1 form Sainsburys), Plastic Witches Hat (50p from Sainsburys), a small plant pot drip tray approx. 150mm dia., a wooden BBQ skewer and some string.

Tools Required:

Drill, Scissors

Step 1: Gather Your Materials

This project makes good use out of a couple of cheap Halloween novelty items from Sainsburys. The plastic witches hat costs 50p and the monster beaker cost £1. I had the rest of the items laying around the house.

Step 2: Drill Four Large Holes

Drill four 25mm diameter holes evenly spaced around the bottom of the beaker. These will be the seed ports.

Step 3: Drill Four Smaller Holes

Step 4: Drill 4 Holes In Drip Tray

Drill four 4mm holes in the centre of the drip tray. Keep the spacing the same as the four holes you drilled in the base of the beaker.

Step 5: Thread Beaker And Drip Tray Together

Cut two 1m lengths of string. Thread each end of one piece of string up through the holes of the drip tray then through the matching holes in the beaker. Repeat with the other piece of string and the remaining holes.

Step 6: Drill Four More Holes

Step 7: Tie A Knot In The String And Fit The Witches Hat

Gather the four ends of the string together and tie a large knot at the same height above the beaker as the height of the witches hat. Cut a 4mm diameter hole in the top point of the witches hat and slip it over the string into position.


Step 8: Fill The Feeder With Seed
