There's no denying that bird feeders are a great way to attract wildlife to your backyard, with sales for the product soaring past the $1 billion mark, with no signs of changing pace, per Allied Market Research. However, rather than splashing money on a new feeder to attract Hummingbirds, you could upcycle some Tupperware and make one of your own, thanks to one crafty TikTok hack by @tinascountrydoor. All you need is to hang the Tupperware feeder in your garden, and you should be able to watch the hummingbirds come flooding in. Not only is this hack super simple, but it's a fantastic choice if you're looking for a low-cost option to attract hummingbirds into your garden. After all, who said you had to spend a fortune?

If you have any spare Tupperware in your cupboards, this may be the perfect time to utilize it. Likewise, it may also prevent you from throwing any into the garbage that you otherwise didn't plan on using. So, how exactly do you make it? Below, we'll break down how you can replicate this magical feeder for yourself.

Find some old tupperware

All you'll need for this hack is old Tupperware, some string or twine, and a wood burner. Alternatively, you can always purchase your own food storage container specifically for this hack. First, you need to ensure your Tupperware is clean and dry before taking your wood burner and lighting it up. This tool will help you create the openings for the hummingbirds to access the food. These don't need to be too big as long as the hummingbirds can use them safely. However, you should complete this step of the process outside, as plastic can emit toxic fumes if you use it with a wood burner. Once the holes are in, all you need to do is add your hummingbird food, secure the top, and slip your twine into place so you can attach it somewhere. Now, you should notice a lot more hummingbirds flitting around your backyard.

This hack works because the hummingbirds can easily use the openings to feed from, which may encourage them to return for more in the future. However, you should always ensure you don't leave it in full sunlight. Likewise, you should also make sure to wash it on a regular basis. By following all of these steps, you should be able to create the perfect Tupperware feeder and support hummingbirds in your garden.
