create a wine bottle hummingbird feeder

>> 3.19.2010

there are a few pleasures that can be enjoyed for free and one of my favorites is watching hummingbirds feed. with the arrival of spring right around the corner, my weekend project is diy wine bottle feeders. here is how to do it...

wine bottle {red is best as the color attracts the hummingbirds}
copper wire
hummingbird feeder tube

1. wrap six or eight gauge copper wire around the neck of the bottle several times. continue wrapping until you reach the base. thus creating a spiral wire cage around the bottle.
2. wind the last three feet of wire into a hanger.
3. insert feeding tube.
4. hang near your flower garden + enjoy!
