How to Make a Plate Butterfly Feeder
Things You’ll Need
At random points along the four strings, thread some glass beads and secure them with knots on either side. These beads will help catch the light to attract the butterflies.
Take the four strings and tie them together around a 1/2″ metal washer. This washer will be used later for hanging the feeder on a tree.
Using a hot glue gun, attach brightly colored silk flowers to the strings at various points
Make your own butterfly food by mixing 10 parts water with one part sugar. Heat the mixture until the sugar dissolves, and allow to cool.
In the center of the plate, place a sponge on some silk leaves. Spoon some of the sugar water mixture onto the sponge until it is saturated, but not overflowing. Then hang the butterfly feeder from a tree branch using wire connected to the washer. Check the feeder regularly to make sure there is plenty of sugar water in the sponge.
Admire and wait for the butterflies to visit the feeder!
