Bottle Bird Feeder
Well, sad to say, this cold of mine is definitely getting worse before it gets better. But one thing (you know, other than Bryan and the big O) that brightened my sickie day yesterday was watching the birds come visit our balcony. It's so enchanting! And, I dare say, a pretty great price for entertainment; in this case, the cost of wild bird food and some junk I had lying around my house. I saw this great idea for a bird feeder over at One Pretty Thing a while ago and wanted to make one, but wasn't willing to give up perfectly good wooden spoons to the birds. So I decided to make a simpler version.
Here's what you'll need to make one:
-a serrated knife
-a pair of scissors
-a permanant marker
-some bird seed (not pictured here)
It took a few days before the birds started coming to our feeder, but now we have lots of hungry visitors. So don't get too discouraged if it takes a few days for the birds to tell their friends about a new great (and so cheap!) restaurant in town.
