Rustic bird feeder


  • 1 metal (camping) cup
  • 100g hardening fat like lard or vegetable fat
  • 200g bird feed
  • String


Step 1: Over a low heat, slowly warm up the fat until it?s completely melted. Add the seeds and mix well so that they?’re all covered.

Step 2: Transfer the mix into the cup. I’ve kept the cup at an angle, but that’?s just optional. Put into the fridge to cool and harden for about an hour. Now cut a piece of string and tie it around the handle.

Step 3: Hang outside.
