Repurposed Aquafina Bottle Bird Feeder
"I am addicted to plastic! When I finished drinking the water from this bottle I decided to try to turn it into a bird feeder for the backyard. I used fast dry fingernail polish to paint a carnival themed feeder. After punching four holes in the top and the bottom I used black 20 gauge wire bending some of the wire around a paint pen to make whimsical loops. In just a matter of minutes I had a little bird check out the new addition to the backyard!"
