Bird Feeder Ornament

This ornament was patterned off the one at S.C.R.A.P..  The craft is designed to help you reuse some old scrap, specifically a pill bottle and a juice bottle cap.

I started off by painting my cap black and filling a mini bead bottle with bird seed.  I glued the pieces together and glued on a small branch.  I found a set of 3 mini birds at a local craft store, and glued one on to the branch.  For the metal top, I used a circle cut from a previous year's Christmas cracker, and glued it into a cone and then glued it to the bottle.  It's a bit fragile, so if I did this again I'd either use cardboard for the cone or glue the paper onto cardboard or cardstock so it's firmer.
