Do you ever see things online or in a store and think “I could totally make that!” I had that moment once when looking through some of the One Kings Lane sales. Some really cute bird feeders caught my eye, but the price tag kind of shocked me.

These look awesome, but I just can’t bring myself to spend $22 on something I can make with materials I already have. Thankfully, the Internet is a treasure trove of ideas and there are so many simple ways to make your own frugal homemade bird feeders. Some of them require spending a little on materials, but many of them you can make with things you have around your house, so they are totally free—just the cost of bird seed!
