Bird Feeder Presents
The perfect gift for Grandma & Grandpas!
Or for friends whose homes you are visiting during the holidays. We started with some piecones we had on hand and our leftover grapefruit rounds (from Christmas morning breakfast).
First we made holes in the grapefruit rounds and tied a little hanger on them with twine. And we aso tied twine around the top pf the piecones.
We had some leftover suet that we combined with birdseed for the grapefruits. And we used peanut butter to cover the piecones, and then rolled them in birdseed too.
We also decorated one of the grapefruits with some grapes we had that were rotting. Then we put them in the freezer so they would firm up,making them easier to give as gifts (as they weren't so sticky) and to keep around until we needed them.
These came in so handy as gifts for those friends and family members who don't want or need presents and for those friends that drop by during the holidays, and you'd like to send them off with something but you already ran out of your baked good gifts! Fun and EASY to make and the birds have been going (literally) crazy over them in the yard!
Wife to a VERY understanding man (even if he does roll his eyes and duck back into his garage way too much); mother to three maniacs,crafter, professional volunteer, crazed maniac in her own right...yep, that about covers it for now.
It's about crafts, family, gardening, life....really whatever the heck I want to talk about. I am wordy, messy, opinionated, disorganized, lacking in focus, manic, craft obsessed...and pretty much this all spills out on the pages of this blog. You've been warned!
