      Clean baby food jar
      Cottonball
      Bright red material
      Glue
      Wire
      Sugar
      Water

      Clean the jar and remove the label. Punch a small hole in the center of the lid and file away any sharp edges. Cut the material into 5 or 6 petal shapes with on end blunted.

      Fill the jar with a solution of one part sugar dissolved in nine parts of water. do not use any other kind of sweetener or any coloring. stretch out the cotton ball and stuff it into the hole in the lid, leaving some hanging out both above and below the hole.

      Glue the petal to the outside of the lid, blunt ends on the jar. the petals lure the butterflies with the bright color and give them a place to land. screw the lid onto the jar.

      use the wire to fashion a holder for the jar hanging it upside down, so the liquid will drip down through the cotton. hang outside
      where you can enjoy watching the butterflies feed.
