Intro: Umbrella Bird Feeder
This is an awesome way to reuse a broken umbrella! The metal frame provides a perfect place for birds to perch, and the colorful fabric is an eye-catching garden decoration. Cleaning is a breeze too - simply spray with a hose, let air-dry, and then refill with seed.
(This project is part of my Girl Scout Gold Award focused on upcycling and recycling broken umbrellas. See other ideas here: https://sites.google.com/site/upcycledumbrellas/projects)
Step 1: Supplies: (1) Umbrella (2) Seed
Step 2: Open Umbrella and Add Birdseed.
Depending on how damaged the umbrella is, you may have to use some duct tape to reinforce the frame. Ours had one broken metal piece that didn't hurt the structure so we just left it alone.
Step 3: Hang in Tree
We've had lots of feathered visitors to our feeder, but haven't been able to get any good pictures yet. We'll add them in the future if we get any.
