There's something delightful about the sight of a hummingbird sipping nectar from a flower. You can attract more hummingbirds to your garden by building this basic feeder.

Step 1: Remove labels
Remove the label from the bottle.

Step 2: Remove cap center
Drill several holes in the top of the screw-on bottle cap and remove the center of the cap.

Step 3: Attach cap to cup
Glue the bottle cap upside-down on the inside bottom of the plastic cup. Apply the glue as four bridges between the sides of the bottle cap and the cup, making sure the bottle cap rests slightly below the rim of the plastic cup.

The plastic cup should be slightly larger and deeper than the bottle cap.

Step 4: Attach eyehook
Drill a hole in the base of the bottle and attach an eye hook for hanging.

Step 5: Attach red flowers
Glue the red plastic flowers to the edge of the cup, leaving room for the hummingbird's beak.

Step 6: Make nectar
Prepare hummingbird nectar by combining 1 cup sugar with 4 cups water and add it to the bottle.

Step 7: Attach bottle
Screw the bottle onto the bottlecap and hang your new hummingbird feeder.

Hummingbirds are only found in the Western Hemisphere.
