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!

    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
