Screwed the jars on to the poultry feeder bases ~ the red are plastic the metal are galvanized I did end up painting a few of these no real reason I just wanted to mix things up :)

I attached the lids using E6000 glue while this works great it smells awful! Make sure to only use in a well ventilated area!

Drilled holes in the bases to aid with drainage ~

Filled and ready for visitors! The small one has a water base attached I’m hoping the little birds will drink from it…

Cheap metal shower curtain hook/rings are awesome for hanging the feeders (work great for hanging plants & solar lights as well) I bought a package of a dozen at the dollar store for you guessed it $1!

    Thank you for such a great idea. I have a chicken feeder but yours gave me a whole new vision for it.

    Cute idea. I want to make one with my granddaughter - one for her house & one for ours. Glad to hear someone else hates the E6000 odor. Used it once on a toilet paper roll craft & they lived in the garage for a year before I could bring in & cover with paper. Have you tried this with GE Silicone II?

    Super cute! I am wondering are you making that many to sell or do you have a big yard?

      If I saw one I probably would have bought one from you!! Would be a wonderful gift to receive!

    Great idea. I'm always looking for more ways to feed the wild birds and most store-bought birdfeeders don't appeal to me. My chickens won't mind if I borrow a few of their feeders. Thanks!
