    Butterfly Feeder

    Clean baby food jar
    Bright red material

    Clean the jar and remove 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 petals
    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.
