DIY: Up-Cycled Bird Feeder | ‪#‎chickfilamomsDIY‬

I like to think of myself as a pretty crafty person, so I made this up-cycled bird feeder from a plastic container from Chick-fil-A. The Chick-fil-A Mom Panel moms were given the up-cycled challenge of turning their spicy southwest salad bowl into anything else.

These were a lot of fun to put together, we have a lot of birds in our yard. We currently have a few nests in the trees and around the playground. When the kids come to visit, they really love watching the birds. So what better to have than a bird feeder. This is something we want to do with the rest of the trees around the yard.

When I received my coupon in the mail from them, I was excited to cash it in for a yummy treat. While the coupon was for the Spicy Southwest Salad, you are able to switch it out for one of the other salads. I just don’t like spicy stuff (I get crazy acid these days), so I got the Cobb Salad instead. None the less, it was still simply amazing.

Steps to making your own “up-cycled bird feeder”

Step 1: Cut a hole in the bottom of the bowl to fit the top of the bottle through it.

Step 2: Paint or spray paint the bottle and lid of salad bowl. Let sit & dry.

Step 3: Hook hanger ends into the lid where there’s holes and then tape the ends under the lid.

Step 4: Cut holes at the bottom of the bottle, so that the seeds could fall out of the bottle into the bottom of the salad bowl.

Step 5: Fill bottle with bird seeds and then screw it on to the bottom of the salad bowl.

Step 6: Hang in the tree and watch the birds get their grub on.

After creating this, I came up with another idea for the birds with using the Chick-fil-A’s salad bowl. Check out some of the other projects.

Disclosure: As a member of the Chick-fil-A Moms Panel I received a coupon for a free Spicy Southwest Salad. No other compensation was received and all opinions are my own.
