A Mason Jar Bridfeeder
I made this birdfeeder with a chicken feeder (49 cents from Goodwill) and a blue Mason jar...25 cents at a garage sale...at that price I bought a box of the jars! :o) I attached a 10 cent enamelware pan to the top.
To attach the pan, I drilled a hole with a diamond bit into the bottom of the jar, drilled a hole in the pan, and attached an eye hook. It was a nice fit but I used GEII glue to secure the pan to the jar as well. I attached the pan to protect the seeds from the rain. Hung it with a chain I had in the garage. An inexpensive, FUN project...one of my favorites. :o)
The birds LOVE it! The photos show a little guy who visited the feeder for hours this evening. I had filled the feeder with sunflower seeds yesterday morning, and today it is half empty. Love watching our feathered friends. Had to share! Bear Hugs! Kirk
