You can search local thrift stores for real ones, decorate anyway you want and...... Make Your Own Bird Feeder! Buy a table leg post, (starting at $4.00 at Home Depot) Put one end of post into ground and stabilize. (Bricks, rocks, cement etc) Attach bubble gum machine to other end of post. (I suggest a square piece of wood approx 8" square and round corners for safety) Attach your new bird feeder onto wood. Then wait for the birds to flock to your yard!
