Wine Bottle Bird Feeder

48K Views
Found an old wine bottle that I wanted to make into a bird feeder.
Time: 3 Hours Cost: $10 Difficulty: Easy
  • wine bottle bird feeder
Found this triangular wine bottle and found a dish that went well with it.
  • wine bottle bird feeder
I marked the center of the wood then traced the bottle around it. I marked an inside line so the bottle would sit nicely in the wood.

*Tip: I used watercolor pencils to mark on the wood because they will dissolve and blend in with the stain.
  • wine bottle bird feeder
I cut out what I marked and sanded the edges.
  • wine bottle bird feeder
I cut 2 1x2's for the sides, sanded them smooth.

All assembled

Tested to make sure I got the spacing correct.
  • wine bottle bird feeder
I stained the whole thing with "Weathered Daydream" Unicorn SPiT
  • wine bottle bird feeder
After it dried I sealed it with an oil based spray sealer.

I marked the center (again with a watercolor pencil) placed the tray then put holes around it. I put wire in the holes to hold the tray in place. The x in the center wiped off with water.

I added a wire hanger and birdseed and the project is complete.

It self feeds until the bottle is empty, then just fill the bottle again.

Material I used for this project:

  • Unicorn SPiT   (www.unicornspit.com)
