Thistle Bird Feeder

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!
Best wishes, Linda
A small Coke bottle turned into a thistle feeder.
A long skinny bottle is perfect. See the holes?
See the dowel? It goes straight through the bottle.
