You will need:


  1. Using decent scissors (carefully) cut a large plastic bottle in two.
  2. Cut notches in the top section and fan them out.
  3. Cut a square shape out of the bottom section big enough for a bird!
  4. Paint the bottle with acrylic paint – if you want to make it easier to paint, cover the bottle in masking tape first. Leave to dry.
  5. Decorate both halves with felt stickers, buttons and glitter glue to make it look pretty.
  6. Add birdseed and firmly insert the bottom half into the top section. You can optionally glue this on and add birdseed from the top.
  7. Finally, wrap some string around the top to hang.
