A while ago I came across this picture of a Oriole feeder from the Droll Yankee website. After looking at it for a moment I realized how quick and easy this could be made. All you would need is a coat hanger and something to connect it too. Cut the coat hanger and loop it as shown in the photo, attach it to a piece if chain, wire, or string, and then attach it to a tree limb or wherever you want.
Most of us think of the Baltimore Oriole when we see a feeder like this; but there are other birds that enjoy nibbling on fruit as well.
Here's some additional information on attracting birds with fruit:
