How to Make an IKEA Plate Bird Feeder

How to make a bird feeder out of Ikea plates

Instructable-er PaulEl shows us how to turn two IKEA plates into one cool bird feeder. Here's what we'll need to make one:    

  • 2 - 12 " Hultet Bamboo Plates (Although, to help keep the squirrels at bay, I might opt for the 18" Hultet for the top plate to help act as a baffle.)
  • a 3/8-16, 12" carriage bolt
  • drill
  • washers, nuts, fasteners, as needed
  • string or wire
  • a key chain clip
  • the maker says these materials are what he used, but encourages experimentation

For the entire tute, head on over to Instructables.
