If you’re thinking of purchasing a new bird feeder why not have a go at creating this Pudsey inspired bird feeder and donating the money you would have spent to the ‘Children In Need’ appeal?

Collect all your materials
Collect all of your components together. The milkshake bottle I’ve used is perfect as the white plastic offers a perfect base to colour in your Pudsey design.
Colour in your Pudsey design and cut out seed ports.
Use the permanent marker pens to create your Pudsey design. Cut four seed ports evenly around the base of the bottle. For this feeder I decided to cut triangular shaped seed ports (you can see them in later images).
Create a hanging loop.
Drill two holes in the lid of the feeder. Feed through a length of string and the tie the two ends together in a knot.
Attach the seed tray.
Drill two holes in the base of the Frijj bottle and two holes in the lid of the small plastic tub. Attach them together using the cable as in the photo above. I used the lid from a small plastic tub I saved (which had sun dried tomatoes in it from the local supermarket deli).
Fill your new feeder.
Fill your new bird feeder with your preferred bird seed. Another perfect opportunity to use my fizzy drinks bottle funnel!
Hang your new feeder.
Now all you have to do is hang your Pudsey bird feeder in the garden and wait for the birds to arrive!
You don’t have to colour the whole of the plastic bottle in. Just drawing the main features and the spotty bandage works just as well!
