Reuse a K-cup in this DIY budget-friend hummingbird water bath.

0 6

For this DIY water fountain to attract hummingbirds to your yard, peek into your coffee corner for some K-cups and straws. You’ll need other bits, too: a plastic shoe box, soldering iron, skewers, glue, and scissors. Now, play a little game of precision with the shoebox lid by drilling holes in its corners. Then, slide a skewer through each hole for that extra bit of stability. But plot twist: flip the lid upside down so the water spilling over the cup is caught by the shoe box. Here’s where it gets techy. With the soldering iron, you are going to drill holes aplenty in the lid. These aren’t for looks; they’re escape routes for the water back into the shoebox. 

At the center of the lid, puncture a hole that will snugly fit the straw. Next, sit the pump in the shoe box, with a straw connector threaded into the gadget’s outlet. Now, for the K-cup transformation from a coffee holder to a bubbler. Simply poke a straw-sized hole at its bottom. Wiggle the straw through, making sure it doesn’t stick out the cup’s top like a sore thumb. After all, you want a filling element, not a geyser. Got a gap around the straw? A glue gun is your friend. From there, load up the shoebox with water, then connect the pump tubing to the K-cup straw. The mini solar panel should be catching some rays outside of the shoebox.
