I painted the cutest beach house inspired bird feeders this past weekend and just couldn’t wait to share them with you. I partnered with Ace Hardware on this post however all projects and opinions are my own. You will just need a few supplies and you too can create some extra special bird feeders for your home. The best part of this paint technique is that it is easy enough for the kids to do as well. They will love getting in there and creating this fun bird feeder then watching the birds all summer long! Don’t forget to scroll all the way to the bottom of this post to enter a giveaway for a $150 Ace Hardware gift card as well!
You will need the following supplies to paint your own beach house bird feeders:
You can pick up all of your supplies at Ace Hardware for one stop shopping!
- Kaytee Cedar Songbird Wild Bird Feeder
- Outdoor approved paint in various colors
- Ace 5 Lbs Safflower Wild Bird Food
- Perky Pet Mason Jar Wild Bird Feeder (cause I just had to add a mason jar to the mix!)
Go wild with super bright colors all over the cedar bird feeders. I did one with all of the colors and the other with just three of my bright choices.
Use a dry brush method to create a rustic beach house feel. Get very little paint on the brush and move across the surface rapidly. This will leave incomplete coverage that will look worn right away.
Don’t worry these are cedar bird feeders so they can withstand the weather fine on their own. You are just adding a little colorful fun to your family birding activities.
The kids will love getting involved in this painting activity then you can enjoy some family birding all summer long. We love to watch the various types of birds that fly around our farm. Be sure to pick up some binoculars and a field guide. Then see how many feathered friends you can spy with bird watching a little each day all summer.
This fun family activity will entertain kids of all ages. We personally love hanging our bird feeders by the creek on our property so there is food and water near by for as many pretty birds as we can attract.
This year we will be enjoying our new bird feeders from Ace Hardware and the colorful transformation we gave them. Be sure to pick up your supplies from Ace to paint your own fun beach house themed bird feeders. You will love the extra color they give your yard and your kids will love watching their new feathered friends this summer!
