Making bird crafts is simple as long as you have the imagination and creativity that it takes to see how something old can become something new. You most likely already have all of the materials that are needed to create bird crafts that are both enjoyable to make and beneficial to our feathered friends. Here are some examples that will help to illustrate the point of just how easy it is to use household materials to make bird crafts.
Gourd Bird Feeders
You may think that once a gourd has been picked, there is only one thing to do with it; eat it. But this is not necessarily so. You can actually make some pretty impressive bird feeders and houses from hollowed out dried guards. Hollowing out and drying your gourd may take some time and cause a mess, but anyone can clean out a gourd (there are also companies that sell dried and hallowed out gourds to crafters if that sounds more appealing to you). Once you have your dried and hollowed gourd, you can drill a hole in the front of the gourd for the birds to access birdseed through. You can also feed the gourd with birdseed and paint the outside of the gourd to look like just about anything. As this gourd will most likely end up hanging from a tree in your yard, why not take the opportunity to use the blank canvas faÃ§ade of the gourd to make your own art piece that can be on display for everyone to enjoy.
