Easy and Unique Seashell Bird Feeder!

It's no secret that I have a TON of collected shells stashed around the house, just begging to be crafted with (you can see how often they show up in my projects here). When a plain 'ol 2x4 was chosen as our Home Depot Gift Challenge this month, myself and the other bloggers where initially stumped on what to do. The item needed to be for a new homeowner. I finally got an idea to make a bird feeder for my best friend who bought her first place not too long ago. We love to go birding, and shelling, so what better than a bird feeder using seashells?!
Time: 1 Hours Cost: $5 Difficulty: Easy
Very few supplies were needed for this project.
Later, I added a hook underneath to hang a suet basket off of too, to give them even more of a buffet. Definitely will be making myself one of these soon!

    I love this idea, but at my house it would be a squirrel feeder :). What a clever idea, though! I love it when people look at something ordinary and do something amazing with it!

      @Emily @ Table & Hearth Put chilli powder in with the seed. Squirrels do not like it, and it does not affect the birds

    I was thinking that as it rains, the food in the shell would get mushy so, how do you empty/clean them?

      @Donna, you could attach magnets to both the shell and board with an outdoor, waterproof silicon adhesive to make them removable to clean. GE II silicone clear Premium Waterproof

    I think I'd add a few drain holes for the above-mentioned rain.
