This week’s post is a fun one for me. I get to write about three things that I absolutely love; woodworking, cooking and birds! I’m sharing a tutorial to make a wooden DIY bird feeder hanger using a single 2×2 board. This hanger can be added to your deck to hang a hummingbird feeder or really any bird feeder for that matter. It’s also great for floral hanging baskets.
