I saw a bird feeder made from a soda bottle and I wanted to make one also. I already have a bird feeder for sunflower seeds. I wanted a thistle feeder to try to attract the American
Goldfinch which is so pretty at this time of year-bright yellow!
I took a bottle and melted holes in it for a dowel to go through. Then I melted a tiny hole just above the dowel for the birds to get the seeds out of. Please don't melt the bottle if you make this. Drill the holes. It's safer. I didn't have hubster or son to drill - "I don't have time now". So I was left to my own devices to figure it out. Drilling is better.
This was one really easy craft. Hopefully, the Goldfinches will find the thistle feeders soon. Hope everyone enjoyed this. i wish I had a picture of a bird on the feeder!
Here is what I've been working on along with my fiancee this year. Each year the garden seems to get a little bigger and more expensive. At least this year, we have been winning the battle against the deer.

I wish mine would flower. Only flowers I have right now are a hanging Petunia and my Purple
Spirea are just starting to flower. My climbing Hydragenia's (sp?), Phlox, Day Lilly's, Rose of Sharon (which are still babies) haven't bloomed yet. My Hosta's have buds started. And my Iris's and Violets have bloomed already.
