I love these so much I might just make one for myself! These sweet clay vase necklaces can be made and enjoyed by all ages and are perfect for slipping in flowers from a nature walk. Get the tutorial details at hello, Wonderful.
Kids and adults will love the challenge of making a nest - and probably have more appreciation for what birds have to go through! The beautiful eggs are made from clay and make such a lovely spring time display. Visit Red Bird Crafts for the tutorial.
Besides being lovely wall art, this indoor herbarium at V & D is educational as well. This example was created with fall leaves but it works for any season. Dried flowers would be so pretty too! (Use Google translator if needed.)
I love feeding wild birds and look forward to what we'll see at our feeders each spring. This year we have had red-winged black birds which has been a surprise. I'm used to seeing them out in the fields but not at our feeders. We've had tons of robins of course, and a variety of finches, juncos, and chickadees. Every now and then a whole flock of cedar wax wings will swoop in and eat the fruit off of our crabapple. Such a beautiful site!
I hope you enjoy these creative bird feeders that can easily be made with items you already have on hand. They're fun crafts and so rewarding for everyone when the birds start to appear. Be sure to check the archives for even more homemade bird feeder ideas!
Creating a window garden from kitchen scraps was one of my favorite things as a child and always popular with my kids and students. You'll find some great ideas and tips for this activity at The Tiny Funnel.
