How to make a Bottle Bird Feeder

Materials:

Directions:

  • Cut the pop bottle so that the bottom is 3 1/2 “ tall and the top is 5 inches tall.

  • Put the top piece of the bottle into the bottom piece. Use the blade to cut a hole into the side of the bottle. The circle should be about 2 inches above the bottom so there is room for the bird seed.
  • Put a strip of E600 glue around the inside where the bottles meet. Move the two pieces around a bit to distribute the glue. Let this dry overnight in a well ventilated area.

  • Let your child paint the apple birdhouse red. (It can take a few coats of paint, letting each layer dry in between, to make it look solid.)

  • Cut a length of twine at least 2 feet long. Use the hot glue gun to secure the ends of the twine to two sides of the birdfeeder (as shown).
  • Take the end of the roll of twine and glue it around the bottom of the “stem” area one or two times (as shown).
