- Plastic Jug (From Water, Milk, Vinigar, etc.)
- Clear Acrylic Sealer
- Bird Seed
- Paint Brush
- Scissors, Utility Knife, or Other Cutting Tool
Make sure the plastic bottle is clean and dry. Use a pair of scissors, utility knife, or other cutting tool to make a hole in the side of the plastic jug. Make sure it is big enough for the bird to fit into the hole. From Sherri: You may want to sand down any sharp edges.
You can now paint the plastic jug however you like. Let the paint dry and then spray it with a few coats of the clear acrylic sealer. Let it dry.
Put loose bird seed or a molded bird feeder into the plastic jug bird feeder. You can now hang the bird feeder in your yard. You can use a shepard's hook style plant hanger by simply placing the handle of the jug onto the hook. You can also hang it from a tree or any other place using some twine.
