These are all great ideas! I should definitely use the compost idea.Thanks for sharing! : )
Coffee Can Bird Feeder
Get a coffee can with a plastic lid and clean it thoroughly. Any size can be used.
Make three or four evenly spaced holes in the sides of the can, near the bottom. You may use a bottle opener for this.
Drill holes (or use the bottle opener again) to make two holes across from each other at the top of can...thread a wire or string through so you can hang feeder. Fill with seed, put plastic lid back on and hang! Chickadees love mine! I'm sure you could also attach a tray at the bottom somehow to catch falling seeds.
I have two uses for coffee cans that are a bit unusual, but they sit proudly in my kitchen. I make a small hole in one plastic cover and put all peelings (from carrots, potatoes, celery etc and dried, egg shells) into the compost bin. The other has a large scissor cut in the plastic cover for a huge ball of yarn that I use in the garden. Put the end of the yarn through the hole and it pulls out without difficulty.
