Mason Jar Bird Feeders ~

by Diana Wearing

The perfect storm! A box full of old pot lids a bunch of mason jars & a buy one get one free sale on poultry bases at the local farm store…I may have got just a little carried away making bird feeders :)

Gathered my supplies...

Best mason jars!

Make your bird feeder with these mason jars that Amazon reviewers swear by!

Screwed the jars on to the poultry feeder bases ~ the red are plastic the metal are galvanized I did end up painting a few of these no real reason I just wanted to mix things up :)

I attached the lids using E6000 glue while this works great it smells awful! Make sure to only use in a well ventilated area!

Drilled holes in the bases to aid with drainage ~

Filled and ready for visitors! The small one has a water base attached I’m hoping the little birds will drink from it…

Cheap metal shower curtain hook/rings are awesome for hanging the feeders (work great for hanging plants & solar lights as well) I bought a package of a dozen at the dollar store for you guessed it $1!

Like I said I got a little carried away making these…
