I took a few moments last night and made a little bird feeder for our patio. The projects is great for recycling and it was cheap to make. I got the crochet twine-like material from a flea market and the little green bowl from a thrift store for 99 cents.
I used the instructions from HERE, but I modified the straps to make it more stable.
I added straps using chain stitch and attached them across forming a triangular shape to make it more stable. Imagine a circle (which is your bowl) and looking from the top down your straps form this shape /\ over your bowl.
