Feeding the Birds?

Last week the weather was FABULOUS. So fabulous that we decided to make a bird feeder. Yep. A bird feeder. It seemed like a really good idea at the time, but since then I haven't seen a single bird. Not one! But it was fun, it turned out pretty cool and it's simple enough to make again when the weather gets warmer. Maybe we'll call it a squirrel feeder and it'll keep them out of the garden. We can hope, right?

The Craft: TP Roll Bird Feeder

What you need:
TP Roll
Peanut butter/butter knife
Bird seed
Hole punch
Wax paper

Lay out wax paper (this will minimize mess and give you a place to lay your bird seed). Punch two holes across from each other at the top of your TP roll. Thread the yarn through the holes and tie off. This will give you a way to hang your bird feeder.

Use the butter knife to spread peanut butter all over the TP roll.

Sprinkle bird seed on the wax paper, then roll your TP roll through the bird seed.

Sprinkle any leftovers on top of any open spots on the roll.

Take it outside and hang it for the birds!


Like I said we haven't had any snackers, but we'll keep watching for them!
