Please, do not put honey, Jell-O, brown sugar, fruit, or red food coloring in your feeder! Honey ferments rapidly when diluted with water and can cause mouth sores and even kill hummingbirds. The red dye has NO beneficial ingredients, and it is not necessary to color the water to attract birds to your feeder. Further, there are unverified reports that red dye can cause tumors in hummers.

Homemade Butterfly Feeder
Diy Butterflies, Gardens Ideas, Butterflies Feeders, Projects, Butterflies Gardens, Butterflies Food, Outdoor, Homemade Butterflies, Yards
Homemade Butterfly Feeder. Think "rotten" when choosing butterfly food. Butterflies like a variety of food sources, especially overripe fruit and rotting vegetation. If you own an apple, plum, cherry or pear tree, allow fallen fruit to ferment on the ground to create a favourite feeding spot. Look in the quick-sale area of your grocer's produce section, and you might even get the produce manager to donate one or two unsaleable pieces of fruit. #butterflies #gardening

DIY Butterfly Feeder - Projects to Bring The Outdoors to Life!
Bird Feeder. If you make this put the bottom spoon as close to the bottom as possible. I ended up putting 3 spoons in mine. I used a 2 liter bottle. It blows around in windy weather more then the store bought bird feeders I have. You need to make a funnel to fill it but the good thing about this is the squirrel doesn't seem to like it... well at least not yet anyway ~!~

winter bird feeder For this project you will need: - 150 grams of shortning - 200 grams of birdfood mixture (birdseed, sunflower seeds, chopped nuts, oats, coconut flakes, raisins, etc... - two cleaned and dried yoghurt cups - metal hook, ribbon or netting material - scissors - ribbon for hanging Instructions: 1. Heat the shortning in a pot until it just melts. Add the birdfood mixture to the liquid and stir thoroughly. 2. Fill each of the yoghurt cups and insert a hook in the center of each cup while the mixture is still wet. The hook will normally hold on its own. You may also choose to use a ribbon for hanging. Just knot one end and insert the knotted end in the wet mixture.... or insert nothing and use a netting material to hold the food cake when solid. 3. Store the cups either outside (if the temperatures are cold enough) or in the refrigerator until the shortning hardnens and the mixture is solid. 4. Cut the yoghurt cup away from the birdfood cake. 5. Tie a ribbon to the hook and hang on a branch.

"I found this old cast iron ashtray at a flea market and saw a birdbath right away! I checked my stash and found an old aluminum tray with a handle that fit perfectly in the top, so sprayed them both and sanded so the iron would show thru. I had this cute little china bird which is really an old salt shaker and epoxyed him to the handle."
