Birds are fascinating creatures, and we want to help you get close to them! Birds are not only integral to our ecosystem but provide us with great pleasure in our daily lives with their cheerful songs, intriguing movements and broad spectrum of colours. So this week we decided to pay a little homage to our feathered friends.

Discover the different species that live in your neighbourhood by building this simple Makedo bird feeder. We've made ours using a reclaimed juice carton and Makedo parts available from mymakedo.com.

Step 1: Find materials

To make this friendly bird feeder, you will need a large milk or juice carton (we painted ours!), a few pencils, some bottle lids, cupcake liners, a plastic container lid, some string, cardboard, two Makedo Lock-hinges, and nine Makedo Re-clips.
I want to make this! Very nice and unique!
