A Butterfly Feeder Jar

Gardens 10.21.14
Make a butterfly feeder jar just in time for spring. Use an old jar or jug with a tight fitting lid. Embellish the jar with glass paints and stencils. Make a hole in the jar lid with a drill or nail and thread strings, a piece of fabric or sponge through the hole. Fill the jar with sugar water, add the lid and hang upside down. Butterflies will soon be stopping by for a sip of nectar. #Easter #Spring #SpringDecor #OutdoorProjects #PowerofPaint #Bestof2013 #ThinkSpring

    rub vaseline on the hanger (string, metal, whatever) of the feeder. the ants get stuck in the vaseline before getting to the feeders; this idea works with hangers of hummingbird feeders also. I've been hanging some of my birdfeeders on a shepherds hook

    I would just use food color to make the string turn red.

    not sure why you have to hang it upside down...the string acts like a wick, just make sure it is long enough to reach the bottom of the glass container, and then hangs out a few inches or so.
