Directions:

  • Clean out the inside of the soda bottle with warm soap and water then allow to dry.
  • Draw a 1/2 inch asterisk on the side of the bottle about 4 inches from the bottom.
  • Draw a 1 inch asterisk on the opposite side of the bottle, again 4 inches from the bottom so the holes line up.
  • Next use a craft knife to cut along the asterisk, on the 1/2 inch side. Then cut out the hole completely on the 1 inch side.
  • Slide a wooden spoon through the holes sliding the handle through the large hold first, then through the asterisk side.
  • Remove the bottle cap and twist a small eyelet screw into the top to hang it by.
  • Finally fill the feeder with birdseed and hang on a tree in your back yard!
