I've just used a really chunky suet feeder which looked like a candle-not sure where I got it sadly, may have been garden centre- but it had mealworms in it and all the birds loved it!
My feeders are similar to yours Aliesh but metal, as the squirrels just destroy the plastic ones. I used to make suet feeders too- melt suet with some bird food and other bits and pieces and refill the coconut shells or put a string/wire in a container, pour the mix in , and lift out when cooled and set. For those with young children- they love doing it
