I have seen mesh bag bird feeder in shops. I thought of spending my weekend to upcycle the mesh bag in to bird feeder for my garden and excited to share with my fellow gardeners.
Mesh bag [ Store brought grocery bag usually comes with Onion, Potatoes or avocado]
Candle or lighter
1 – Wash the grocery mesh bag and dry it.
2 – Remove the opaque black part from the bag. This will make seed availability to birds. I got two mesh piece of 25 cm X 10 cm .
3 – Lit the lighter or use candle to affix the sides carefully . As it is plastic so it melts and get fixed as expected with no external glue.
4 – Fold the wire in two equal part, twist the wire at both ends and fix it in the bag as shown above in step 4
Fill in the seed and hang them in your garden
These bags help to preventing unnecessary waste and spills and you can tag them multiple branches so that more birds can enjoy.
It’s a great happiness to recycle the onion mesh bag to these little feeders with no cost. Learn to #reuse and #recycle , it’s fun. I hope you enjoyed this short tutorial and would love to hear your feedback and suggestions.
