In the winter we always like giving the birds a bit of extra food outside to help them through the colder days. These heart bird feeders make a lovely activity, Valentines Day crafts and can make a lovely homemade gift for anytime of the year.
What do I need to make the Bird Feeders?
- A couple of pipe cleaners
- Cereal hoops
- A piece of string / wool / ribbon
How to make the Bird Feeders?
Get a pipe cleaner and bend it into a heart shape. Don’t attach the two ends yet.
Now thread on your cereal hoops onto the pipe cleaner.
Once you have filled up the heart bird feeder, attach the two ends of the pipe cleaner together to form a heart shape. (Just twist the two ends together).
Then tie a ribbon, wool or string at the top of your bird feeder so you have something to hang it off.
Then hang to bird feeder/s outside on a branch for the birds.
Once the birds have enjoyed their tasty treat collect in the used pipe cleaners.
