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!

      I believe you would unscrew the jar from the base top or bottom.

    How did you make the post feeder? Here on the coast of BC it rains all the time. I live in a townhouse so I can't hang too much on the outside but the post in the ground would be great! I can put up the post but what about the feeder part. This is what I need to know how to make. :)

      Hi Annie - We bought that feeder we didn't build it, that style is called a hopper feeder. You might be able to find directions on how to build one online - good luck!
