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!

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!

    Hi! These are so adorable!! I too would like to know what you sell them for, or a round about figure. I'm not sure how to price these. Thank you! and keep up the VERY CUTE work :)

    after checking on prices for all the supplies I found it way cheaper to buy the already made feeders....but for someone that already has lids, glue, jars, hangers and feeders this is a good idea..

      I check out thrift stores & flea markets for my project pieces and buy my bases when they are on sale so for me these are not too expensive to make they cost around $5-$6 apiece.

    I have nine feeders in my yard today. I'm always looking for yet another feeder. Love this project. And the material will outlast pricey store bought feeders. My only question is about adding perches so the little birds have a place to sit and

    This would make a great VBS craft for kids. They could paint the lid, even the jars. They would love it, and hanging in their yards and able to see something they made that is useful.
