This lovely weather has got us thinking about nurturing our gardens and the wildlife who inhabit them. Morgana has created these gorgeous bird feeders for our flying friends to enjoy! You will need:

  • A 2 litre plastic bottle, paint, scissors, tape, string, PVA Glue.

Steps: 1. Cut the bottle in half and fit both pieces back together. 2. Draw out the shape of the doorway desired by cutting them out. 3. Placing them back together and taping the entire thing solid. 4. Base coat of your choice to make a solid base. 5. Design and have fun making it your own, let it dry and add a thin layer of PVA glue.

Happy making!

DIY Bird Feeders Part 2

Welcome back to DIY Bird Feeders Part 2! You will need:

  • Rolled Oats, honey, almond slices, plain flour, apples, honey, peanut butter, string

Steps: 1. One cup of all the dry ingredients in a bowl. 2. Melt the peanut butter and honey and follow by pouring the mixture into the bowl. 3. Start mixing until you get a batter ( it does take a little elbow grease, don’t be shy to use your hands) 4. Add additional milk, honey or peanut butter if needed to get the desired crumble consistency. 5. With your hands begin rolling the batter into balls and place on tray. 6. Place in fridge for 1 hr until solid !! And there you have it !!
