Suitable For: Any Age (5+) Time Needed: 15 Minutes
What You Need: (x2) Fizzy drinks bottles and a wooden BBQ Skewer
Tools Required: Scissors
In this ‘How To’ guide I’ll show you how to make a simple bird feeder out of a couple of fizzy drinks bottles and a wooden BBQ skewer.
Kids will love this simple project as the feeder looks a little like PacMan!
Cut the base off of two fizzy drinks bottles
Cut the base off of two empty 2lt fizzy drinks bottles as in the photo above (I’ve obviously cut the base off of four bottles as I intend making two feeders). On most fizzy drinks bottles (definitely Pepsi) there is a ridge line near the base of the bottle. Cut around this line. Save the remaining parts of the fizzy drinks bottles as you will be able to use them in some of my other ‘How To’ guides.
Assemble the feeder
Cut the wooden BBQ skewer in half. Make a few holes in the fizzy drinks bottle bases. Join the two bases using one half of the BBQ skewer and use the other half to create a perch.
Fix the feeder in a suitable position
Fix the feeder in a suitable position in the garden. The top base acts as a roof to protect the food below from the worst of the rain.
