Backyard Bird Feeder

Spoon feed your winged neighbors with this homemade birdseed dispenser. A great way to get the kids involved

You need clean 1 liter soda bottle/craft knife/2 wooden spoons/small eye screw/length of twine for hanging

Start by drawing a 1.2 inch asterisk on the side of a clean 1 liter bottle,about 4 inches from the bottom. Rotate the bottle 90 degrees and draw another asterisk 2 inches from the bottom. Draw a 1 inch wide circle opposite each asterisk as shown

Use a craft knife to slit the asterisk lines and cut out the circles. Insert a wooden spoon handle first through each hole and then through the opposite asterisk,as shown

Remove the bottle cap and twist a small eye screw into the top if it for hanging

Finally, fill your feeder with birdseed, recap it, and use a length of twine to hang it from a tree
