Here is a wonderful idea to give back to Mother Nature and reuse those handy dandy drink mix containers!
WHAT YOU NEED:
ONE DRINK MIX TUBE WITH COVER
SHARP CRAFT KNIFE
AWL OR NAIL
PLASTIC PLATE (NOT THE DISPOSABLE KIND) OR PLANT TRAY
STRING OR CORDING OF SOME KIND
STRONG GLUE OR EPOXY THAT WORKS ON PLASTIC
1.) Using your craft knife, cut small openings in the bottom of the container large enough for seed to pass through.
2.) Next using your awl or nail, punch a hole on each side of the top of the container at the same level. Thread your cording through these holes and tie in to a loop for hanging.
3.) Affix the plate to the bottom of the container. This will catch any stray seeds and gives your flying friends a place to rest their weary wings.
4.) Fill with seed, pop on the cover, and hang in your yard.
