Make Easy Bird Feeders from Recycled Coffee Cans

1 Hour

Spring is here and the birds have returned from their winter homes. Make them up some cute feeders from coffee cans. Add in the right kind of food and you could be listening to the beautiful song birds in no time.
Only use actual metal cans. The cardboard ones will not hold up in the weather.
Remove the bottom with a can opener and take off the label.
Paint your can up and seal with a water proof sealant.
Cut the top of the can in half and hot glue each half onto each of the ends of the can.
Add two tiny nail holes to the top. String through twine and tie in a knot.
Fill with food, hang in a tree, and watch the birdies come to eat.

    Hot glue a plastic straw (McDonald's etc) onto the raw edges where the little birdies would stand to cushion their feet. I'm sure they'll thank you by coming back again and again to feast on the food you've provided them.
