All Natural Bird Feeder


Please welcome my 'friend in real life' and blog buddy Dani from I'm Just That Way And That's Just Me
She's blogging here at Lady Of The Arts and showing us how to make an all natural creative project that she recently made with her daughter. 
In the words of Dani G:
I've always called my daughter Little Bird and I decorate our home with birds all around, but nothing beats having the real thing right outside our windows. So, I decided we'd make our own bird feeder and wait patiently for them to appear. 

All you need is:
An orange
Peanut Butter
Birdseed
String

That's it. Really! 
We sliced an orange in half and then removed the pulp, setting it aside. 


Next, we mixed up the pulp with some peanut butter.
Added in some delicious birdseed. 
I'm just guessing it's delicious- I did not taste it


I poked about four holes in the rind of the orange and fed a string through the holes. 

Then, put it all together!


Thanks Dani! 
These are great action shots of the birds enjoying their yummy treat.
Thank so much for sharing this great project with us.

What kind of crafts have you been up to lately?
Do you have a bird feeder in your outdoor space?

I remember doing these kind of projects when my daughter was little, such fun.
I have a hummingbird feeder right outside my studio window, I watch them all day long :)

This is such a great idea and a
project that is so doable with even
very young children. Hummm, I'm not so young, but it something I
would like to try. Thanks for the idea Dani.
