Step 2: Step One: Cut Some Holes
First cut some square holes around the top of the bottle, three should do it.
Then poke a hole into the bottom of the bottle and through the center of the of the lid of the food container
(this is for hanging it up)
then a ring of holes around the bottom of the bottom of the plastic food container
(these are to drain water from the bird feeder)
Step 3: Step Two: Glue Some Stuff
Now Glue the cap from the plastic bottle to the bottom center of the plastic food container
and glue the lid of the plastic food container to the bottom of the plastic bottle
if the glue does not hold or your dont have any use a screw
Step 4: Step Three: Hang It Up
After letting the glue dry at least a couple of hours over night is better.
Take the coat hanger and bend the hook part and put to through the two holes in the lid of the food container and the bottom of the plastic bottle. This is to hang it up.
Then fill it with bird seed and hang it in a tree.
