Cord or Small Rope
Plastic Jar with lid
1/4 inch dowel
Paint or markers
With a hole saw or dremel cut some holes in the jar that are about the same size as the inside diameter of the PVC pipe. Space the holes evenly around the jar. Keep the bottom holes at least 1 inch from the bottom of the jar.
Cut the PVC as shown. I used a mitre saw set at 45 degrees. Trim one side of each to be a slight curve to fit into the jar.
Glue the PVC into the jar over each hole. I had to glue one then wait till that was dry before doing the next.
Have some fun decorating the frisbee and the jar. Paint or permanent markers are best for this.
Drill holes just big enough for the cord to pass through in the frisbee evenly spaced around the edge. Insert cord ends down through holes and tie a knot in the end of each one.
Glue the jar lid to the underside of the frisbee in the center. Let that sit over night to cure.
Drill 1/4 inch holes about 1/2 inch below the feeding holes. Cut dowel about 3 inches longer than the width of the jar. Insert the dowel and secure with glue.
After all the glue is cured fill it up to the top with bird seed, screw the lid on, and hang it outside your favorite window.
