Upcycling: Toilet Roll Bird Feeder
Now that fall is here, it’s time to start feeding the birds for the winter. During the leaner months, providing bird food for your neighborhood feathered friends will guarantee that they give you a show every day. This little bird feeder is a great reuse of empty toilet rolls and is simple enough for even small fingers to help with!
Things you’ll need:
Coffee filters or paper towels
Things to do:
1. Spread peanut butter over the outside of the cardboard tube as if you were icing a cake. You don’t want a ton, but you’ll want enough for the seed to stick well.
2. Pour the seed into the plate and roll the tube around, pressing the seeds in as you go.
3. Set the tube upright on a paper towel or coffee filter and move on to the next one. After a few minutes, re-roll the tubes so that any empty spaces where seeds have dropped can be filled in.
4. Thread one yard of ribbon through the opening of each tube and tie the top in a bow. Hang up in a tree and watch the birds flock.
