Use up those CocaCola Bottles (or Pepsi if ya got em) and decorate the yard. I love to have glass in my yard and have some blue Milagro Tequila bottles out there just for the color. I also was given a tiny blue glass ball from a friend, and it looks so nice out there just sitting in a pot with some flowers.
The sky is the limit..they have screw on cap hummingbird feeder attachments if you have screw bottles you want to use. There are links in My Favorite Things in the Garden section on my Amazon store to get parts to make them also.
Here are a few ideas I have come across. I have some great feeders in my yard but had to make the coca cola bottle one, as coca cola is a reminder of my childhood, when they had the glass returnables. (I am aware they have glass bottles now, but they are not as thick, or inexpensive)
You can paint up bottles if you are creative. Its fun to paint flowers. As much wine as we have been going through here, I think I am going to do this as soon as I get more corks. They would make great gifts for friends and family!
Hummies are also attracted to Red, Yellow and Blue trumpet type flowers, honeysuckle, petunias (they come to my pink petunias everyday, its how they found my feeder), hummingbird vine (I have it all over and can't kill it, there are places I want it gone and it comes back every year, its growing from under my house lol)
Hummingbird Nectar Recipe
Directions for making safe hummingbird food:
Mix 1 part sugar with 4 parts water and bring to a boil to kill any bacteria or mold present.
Cool and fill feeder.
Extra sugar water may be stored in a refrigerator.
Red dye should not be added.
The hummies are attracted to the red flower on your feeder, not the color of the nectar. I love the feeders with landings because they stay longer when they can sit to eat.
As soon as I make my Tequila bottle hummy feeder, I will post pics. I can't wait to make a ton of these things!
