Make Bird Feeders from Repurposed Cans

It's no surprise that we love a good repurposing project around here so when I saw these cute bird feeders that Sara from Mom Endeaveors made with empty paint cans, I was in love. Please note that these particular cans Sara used did not hold paint. I would only recommend using a can that once housed paint if it was a VOC free paint that is now 100% washed out.


  • Small empty paint cans (or large food cans)
  • Small wooden dowel
  • Acrylic paint
  • Hot glue gun and glue
  • Ribbon for hanging
  • Birdseed
