Upcycled License Plate Window Feeder
Here’s a simple way to give new life to an old license plate. Suction cups let you attach this L-shaped feeder to any window. Just add seed and watch! The sides are made of recycled wood. Contact the seller online to see if a plate from your favorite state is available. 4" tall, 6" deep, 6" wide.
Whole Peanut Wreath Feeder
Blue Jays, nuthatches, titmice, chickadees, and other peanut-eating birds will enjoy this wreath feeder — and so will squirrels. (Here’s an idea: Why not use it to lure the rascals away from your birdseed feeders?) Easy to fill: Just hook the ends of the metal spring and throw in the nuts. Birds will perch at all angles to feast on peanuts. 13" diameter, 2.75" deep.
