3. Paint the container, if desired. Let it dry.
4. Skewer a dowel rod through just under the opening for the birds to perch on.
5. Poke a hole in the middle of the top of the carton, and thread a piece of yarn or string through it to use as a hanger. Make sure the feeder hangs where branches will not rub against it, but also where it is still somewhat hidden in the tree’s leaves.
