When we put the bare Christmas tree out in the yard to attract birds we needed some edible ornaments.
I made a quick trip to Wal-Mart to purchase peanut butter and bird seed.
I had some pine cones (left over from other projects) onto which we tied some wire for hanging. Sug spread peanut butter on the cones.
We simply rolled the cones in a plate of bird seed and voila — bird snacks.
We made a dozen but have plenty of supplies to replenish the tree if it is popular with birds.
We hung the cones on the balsam fir and added a bird seed bell a the top.
We dug a hole in the bottom of a pre-made birdseed bell and fitted it onto the top of the tree. Hoping for some hungry visitors soon.
We added a laser light for a little night interest.
When do you take your holiday decorations down?
