Mason Jar Bird Feeder

This DIY Mason Jar Bird Feeder craft is perfect for Spring!

  • Mason jar or pasta jar, clean and dry
  • 1 wooden dowel (approximately ¼ to ½ inch diameter and at least 10 inches long)
  • Jute twine
  • Clear or red pony beads, optional
  • Birdseed
  • Gorilla glue
  • Scissors
  1. Create a line of glue down the center of one side of the jar. Place the dowel over the glue.

  2. Also place the end of the jute twine in the glue. Allow to dry completely.

  3. Wrap the jute cord around the jar and dowel. When the jar is covered to your liking, tie off the jute twine and cut the end.

  4. Use two additional pieces of jute twine (approximately 36 inches long each) to wrap around the jar’s mouth.

  5. Repeat at the bottom (wrapping around the dowel to help hold it securely).

  6. If desired, thread the twine at the mouth of the jar with pony beads. Repeat at the bottom of the jar.

  7. Bring the twine from the mouth and bottom of the jar together and knot well to create a place for the bird feeder to hang.

  8. Fill the jar about halfway with birdseed.

  9. Hang from a tree, clothesline, fence, or plant hanger.
