Left home alone today, I got out hammer,nails,spikes, hole punches........and I finished two of them. One is on an aluminum pie plate and an animal cracker tin, and is bolted together on the bottom. It's for setting on a flat surface,at least for now. I didn't get these holes big enough, but if the birds do eat it, I'll fix it later.,
I bolted the lid to the bottom of the can, along with a chain for hanging. There's a hole in the lid large enough for the chain to go through. Just lift the lid when you need to refill with bird seed.
You can see the top in this view.
Here's a view from the side, you can see the old lid and the chain.
Another view...I noticed my tin cardinal is going to be the first to try it out! He better watch out for the tin cat..........
Go make some!
