How to Make Birdseed Hangers!

Seeds for birds are limited during the winter months with snow and ice covering their food sources. Birdseed hangers are easy to assemble and provide a go-to spot for bird watching. Let's make some birdseed treats and hang them outside for the birds to enjoy!

What you’ll need:

1 Slice of bread for each hanger
Cookie cutters
Yarn, string or ribbon
Peanut butter
Bird seed

How to make it:

1. Use a cookie cutter to create shapes from slices of bread.
2. Let bread sit on the counter until dried out – a few hours should be good.
3. Use a toothpick or something similar to poke a hole through the bread for the string. NOTE: Bread may tear if the hole is too close to the top, leave room above the hole. (see picture)
4. Thread ribbon through the hole and carefully tie in a knot.
5. Spread both sides of bread with peanut butter.
6. Line a plate with birdseed and place the hanger on the birdseed. Turn over to coat both sides thoroughly.
7. Hang the treats outside! (Place the treats close to a branch so birds will be able to perch while enjoying the treats.)
