Looking for a unique way to use pumpkins?
We’ve found a unique way to use a pumpkin as a bird feeder. Here’s an easy DIY that the whole family can get involved in. This adorable pumpkin bird feeder DIY won’t take long to attract some lovely visitors, too.
If using a newer pumpkin, you can use the seeds to make delicious roasted pumpkin seeds. This won’t last forever, especially since pumpkins tend to mold semi-quickly, but you will get around a week or two out of your pumpkins. Plus, it’s a fun and creative DIY!
Hip Tips for making a Pumpkin Bird Feeder:
- As mentioned above, pumpkins do go bad pretty quickly, so don’t plan on this being a long-term feeder for birds. Once it molds, throw it away!
- Small to medium size pumpkins are going to work the best since they aren’t too heavy.
- Aside from your pumpkin, tools, and bird seeds, all you need is Jute rope, Wooden rods, and U-shape fence nails.
- You will be using 4 u-shape fence nails. You might have a few in the garage, but you can also get them at Home Depot for a great price!
- When tying the rope, ensure you cross it evenly along the bottom of the pumpkin. Otherwise, the weight won’t be evenly distributed.
