Humming bird feeder
got these tubes in a box of stuff I picked up. Daughter saw some on website and started making them.
Enjoyed the project?

Forestine M on May 29, 2012She used some 12 gauge copper wire from some electrical cable we had left over from a re-wire. If I were going to purchase copper wire for this project I would get a 14 gauge, much easier to work with, 12 gauge is pretty stiff.
Jeannie Carle on Aug 26, 2015These are gorgeous, but apparently I'm missing something - how do they drink from this? I have several tubes and would love to do this. :-)

Jeannie Carle on Aug 28, 2015@Forestine M Gotcha! Thought it almost had to be that way, but would think that would leak and lead to lots of ants :-)
