Here is what you'll need:
1 or 2 liter plastic bottle
2 wooden spoons
small eye screw
some kind of rope or twine for hanging
knife or scissorsbird seed
For another reference on this project, check out Disney Family Fun.
Turn the bottle 90 degrees and draw another asterisk 2-3 inches from the bottom. Then draw a one inch wide circle opposite each asterisk.
Take the eye screw and screw it into the middle part of the bottle cap. Then run your rope or twine through the eye part for hanging.
Decorate how ever you want. We decided to put Dora and Diego stickers on ours.
And the fun part....Filling up the bottle with birdseed. We found that if you position the feeder like the picture above, it's easier to fill up without seed falling out. You can see our wonderful mess. Oh, and it might be easier if you have a funnel..We didn't have one, so I made one out of paper.
And this is where we clean the mess......
Put the cap back on the top of the bottle...Look mom! A bird feeder!!!
And finally....Hang up your feeder for all the world to see!! And of course, to feed the birds.
I will update with pictures of it actually being used. Hope they like it, and you guys too!! Happy Monday!!
