My first customer...a honeybee.
Cut an upsidedown "U" shape about 1 inch (2 1/2 cm) from the bottom. Make 3 of these around the can.
Push in the metal so that it forms an opening as shown above. Be careful not to scratch yourself on the edges. Hang it outside, then fill it until it overflows.
You do not need to add red color to the sugar water.
As long as there's some red on the can, you can leave it "plain" or make a "Deluxe" model with red paper and stickers.
I use red paper and stickers if it is a green can. Flower shaped red stickers would be nice, but I didn't have any handy.
I hope to see some hummingbirds tomorrow.
I got this idea from some people camping in a state park in Arkansas. They had made 10 of them and hung them all over their camping area as a temporary attraction for these lovely birds. The hummingbirds swarmed around them endlessly.
Try it! David/ :-)
