Does anyone have any ideas for "decorations" to make to put out for the birds?

Looking for recipes and ideas for food things to make for the birds to hang on the trees outside for the holidays.

  • the pine cones are cute and easy we did it with cub scouts one year , you can also use corn cobs with the PB and rolled in seeds. after the birds get to it he squirrels will love you too.

  • You can get a pine cone.... roll it in peanut butter and sprinkle with bird seed.... wont that work? Ive never done it, but it sounds like it would be cute, and yummy for the birds too! Good luck!

  • I guess PB is ok for birds. When I was a child we used to roll nuts and seeds in lard. But that was a million years ago. Can you still buy lard?

  • You can still get lard :)

    You could also get those suet blocks and cut them into star shapes or stocking shapes and hang those from the tree.
