Birds have been chirping away in our backyard for weeks now. They don’t seem to care that the calendar only says March since it has been so warm. If you would like to welcome spring birds into your yard, you can make a beautiful mason jar bird feeder in no time!
This project is part of Spring Jar Week with three other creative bloggers. I will link to their most recent spring jar tutorials at the bottom of the post, so be sure to check them out too!

Is there any way to hang this bird feeder? I’ve tried drilling holes in the bottom (it’s not that easy. You need a special drill bit and I still broke the jars). I’ve seen the wire wound around the jar but I don’t find that attractive. I’ve also tried drilling holes in the bird feeder part and running chain or wire through that. The jar is unstable and tips over.
This particular bird feeder is meant to stand on the ground (like for feeding chickens, for example). If your feeder is unstable even with feed in the jar, you might need to downsize the size of the jar. If you want to hang the feeder, you will need to drill holes on either side of the bottom of the jar using a drill bit meant for glass.
