Push an unsharpened pencil in one side of the milk jug and out the other to form a small perch on each side of the bird feeder.
- 4). Make a hole on each side of the jug just below the cap. Push a piece of twine in one side and pull it out of the other. Tie your bird feeder over a branch and knot the twine to secure the feeder.
