Jonathon Fong from E-How has made a very pretty version of the Butterfly Feeder  and he has 2 great examples using a hanging plate and also a jar. We love the way he uses a sponge placed on some leaves as a puddling area for the Butterflies.

This is something that they are particularly fond of given they love to bask in the sun. Jonathon has a full tutorial on his site plus a video that shows you the butterflies flocking to his feeder.

There are a number of ways that you can make a Butterfly Feeder and this infographic from my ubam shows you how to make a simple version using a cup.

The sugary water that you will use in your cup is similar to nectar. Be sure to add some petals to your cup as butterflies are attracted to pretty things. This is a great idea and very simple too.
