About: Technics/ arts and crafts teacher at a school for mentally disordered young adults.

A very quick and simple way to make your own birdseed silo. Without any special materials you can make a perfect functioning birdfeeder from waste material.

One empty milk carton

a pair of scissors

two staples and a stapler

Piece of wire or string


Step 1: The Cut

Find an empty 1 litre pack of milk, yoghurt or something like that. Cut of the bottom with a 2 cm rim. Rinse the inside of the box .

Step 2: The Fold

Push a section of the front side inward by making a diagonal fold on each side.

Step 3: The Assembling

Place the box inside the bottom. Secure with a staple on each side.

Step 4: The Finish

Attach a piece of wire or string to hang the box. Fill it with birdseed, and select a place in the garden.

Wait till the birds discover their new fastfood restaurant.

En dan zeggen de Belgen dat Nederlanders zuinig zijn.

Ik vind dit ook zuinig, maar wel heel slim bedacht!

Smart idea. And cheap. More money for birdseed.
