I am having trouble fitting all the pinterest ideas that inspire me into the short 24 hours per day, unless I go without sleep some will just probably never get done.
However, there was this amazing chicken house that was pinned, which led me to Karens’s blog: The Art of Doing Stuff , where I saw these:
I knew this was a doable project and the next time I was at Savers I scored one of these orbs.
The orbs in the picture above are glass, and on her blog Karen shows what can happen if one slips out of your hands while crafting one of these, I lucked out and got a plastic one. With 4 young ones around the house I knew a glass orb did not stand a chance.
So you will need, a plastic orb and some sort of strong string, we used twine:
You can see this is not going to be a spendy feeder so if some hoodlum decides to snag your bird feeder some night, it won’t be a huge loss, except for the birds:
Take your plastic orb and drill 2 holes across from each other on the top third of the orb:
Next take your string, twine, rope or what you are using and string it through the two holes you just drilled, you can ties these in a knot and hang it from your tree.
Tie the string in your preferred knot and hand from a tree limb….also pretty important to fill with birdseed, which you can see we need to put on the list.
Total cost: $1.99 since we had the twin already, who know how much the bird seed will cost, but you can factor that in.
Total time, about 5 minutes.
