This week’s post is a fun one for me. I get to write about two things that I absolutely love; woodworking 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.

2×2 x 72″ board
Bird feeder ( I went with a Hummingbird Feeder but you could use a bird seed feeder too)
Cut the 2×2 board into three pieces as shown in the plans.
Use brad nails to attach the boards to each other.
Pre drill holes for ceiling hook and to where the hanger will attach to the deck post.

Beautiful action shots of the humming bird. Love the project!
Thanks! I have my husband to thank for the action shots. He’s a way better photographer than I am 😂.
I use the same recipe for hummingbird food. Your hanger is perfect! Thank you for sharing at Party In Your PJ’s!
Thank you Ann. 🙂

So simple but works wonders to get those great photos!
Oh how lovely! Thank you for sharing with us at the To Grandma’s house we go link party. I’ll be featuring you on my blog when the next party starts on Wednesday morning!
I love this! We love the hummers here in my yard and I make my own juice as well. So much cheaper!! And you are right, better for those sweet and fun hummers. You took some amazing photos!!
Thanks for linking up @LiveLifeWell!
Your hubby’s photo’s rock! And so does that simple rustic bracket/brace! You could use that for so many projects! Good to see you last week at TTA! Hope to see you this week, too!
Thanks so much Julie.
Fabulous photos of the hummingbird! We saw a hummingbird in our yard for the first time and we’ve lived here 20 years. Maybe if we built a hanger like yours, we’d attract and see more of them. Great idea! Pinned 🙂
Thanks Marie. I’m lucky to have a husband that knows how to take amazing photos because I definitely don’t have that skill!
Beautiful! The feeder and the pictures:)
That’s lovely. Thank you so much
My only concern is: how I can keep ants out of bird feeder
Thanks! I get ants in mine from time to time but I pay a pest control company to spray around my home quarterly and that takes care of it. I’ve also wondered if vinegar on the holder would deter the ants.
