Introduction: Humming Bird Feeders With Class
Be the talk of the bird town with a classy humming bird feeder
Step 1: Step. 1 : Find or Buy and Old Chandelier
I usually find one for around ten dollars
take off the shades and wires
Step 2: Step 2: Paint It
you can leave it as is or spray paint if you like
the birds do not care
Step 3: Step 3: Get Some Old Soda Cans
I like using the small ones as the food can go bad after 3 or 4 days anyway
plus I like the look of the small ones, altho I have used regular, and tall sizes.
again, the birds do not care
if you use a can, poke a hole in the side. I have used a nail and a drill, both work.
I tried adding perch but the birds didn't use it.
I added little flowers and painted the cans, but worked fine without
if you want to add feeders, the one flower ones work best
Step 4: Step 4: Hang the Cans or Feeders
I used S hooks or a little piece of wire. I used the can flip top and tilted it straight up.
I also tried drilling a hole but either works.
Step 5: Step 5: Make Some Food
I used 4 cups of warm water to 1 cup of sugar stir till dissolved.
keep any extra in the fridge.
I bring in all my cans or feeders and fill them in the sink.
A sauce pan makes it easy to carry then all in and out again.
Step 6: Step 6: Hang the Feeder So You Can Watch the Birds
sat back and enjoy all the humming birds that will fight over a chance to drink from you upscale feeder that didn't break the bank
