Using Large Laundry Containers to Make a Bird Feeder or Bird House?

I have very large liquid laundry containers. I have heard that there are people who recycle them into bird feeders. I can imagine, if this is so, that they would be quite colorful and serve the purpose.


How do you go about it? Can the bird-lovers out there describe the process of conversion?

Homemade Feeders

Any clean, plastic container (soda and laundry detergent bottles, for example) can be made into a feeder by cutting a rectangular panel out of one side, a few inches from the bottom. Leave the cap on and fill the bottom with seed. A paper milk-or juice-carton will work well too. Slice off the bottom corners of the carton with a razor blade, cutting off just enough to allow a sunflower seed through the hole.


Punch small holes in the carton next to the feeding holes and insert twigs or dowels into the holes as perches. Fill the carton with seed and staple it shut. Then punch a hole through the top of the conainer to accommodate a hanging chain and hook, and hang the feeder. These feeders will probably be demolished by squirrels, but they're fun while they last.
