There’s nothing like a creamy cup of coffee in the morning! Most days, I use my favorite flavor of International Delight to add a little something special to my morning cup of coffee or chai tea — Cold Stone Creamery™ “Sweet Cream” is my ID flavor of choice! I love that this flavor is so versatile and I can use it not only in my coffee but in recipes, too. My daughter and I like to make french toast using Sweet Cream in place of the milk — talk about a yummy way to wake up! 


Once the creamer container is empty (that happens too often!), it’s also fun to recycle it into something useful. We recently made a really simple bird feeder using the latest empty International Delight container.

To make our feeder, I just followed the curve along the flat part on the back of the container and used an exacto knife to carefully cut out an opening large enough for a small songbird to fit through. I folded the flap up and out  a bit to create a mini eave that will help rainwater slide away from the cup. I also poked a few small holes in the bottom of the feeder so any rain that does get in, will drain off.

You don’t really need a perch, we liked ours without. If you would rather have one, use a paper punch to make a hole about 1/2″ down from the opening and insert a small dowel or even a colorful pencil into the opening. I would use a hot glue gun to attach the rod to the inside back of the container so the birds have a sturdy resting place.


To hang the feeder, I knotted a long piece of ribbon, placed it under the cap and used a hot glue gun to seal the cap. We liked ours plain but if you’re feeling crafty, you can use paints, stickers or even colorful duct tape to decorate the feeder — I’m sure the birds will enjoy it!
