Project Description


After seeing all of the suggestions for utilizing Christmas trees after the holidays, our family set the tree in our backyard and crafted a variety of treats for birds to hang as ornaments. In addition to helping provide the birds with some extra protein and nourishment in the wintertime, the tree offers a small amount of additional shelter, and extra material for building nests.

For the ornaments, we made:

– Pine cones covered in peanut butter and dipped in birdseed

– Strings of apple and orange slices

– A hanging apple bowl with birdseed and fruit chunks

– Suet chunks covered in extra birdseed (YUM)

– Hanging Spanish moss as tinsel (for extra nesting material)
