Bird Feeder Wreath

If you build it...they will come:



I was inspired by Appalachian Lady:
to make a bird feeder wreath.
I used two grapevine wreaths.
I rolled pine cones in peanut butter and then in bird seed
and also added some millet.
Stuffed some peanuts in.....


And they came!
I have one hanging on each side of my deck.
I'm normally not very crafty...and they aren't the best looking....
but they do the job!

Super cool idea, and I know the birds are grateful.

Carletta said...

A wonderful idea. I'm looking at my deck now deciding where to hang one. :)
Love that Blue Jay!

I made a wreath for the birds too. I hadn't thought to put peanuts in the wreath! That is a sure way to get the blue jay to land on it.

What a cool idea...I may have to get one up on our deck!

Ruth said...

Where are the squirrels? They would dismantle that in 2 minutes in my yard. I like the look of the wreath and will have to give some thought to how I can make one for birds only.

These are great! I have some grape vine wreaths I made a few years ago just laying around. Guess what I'm going to do with them? Thanks for the idea.

Well it looks like they work. Maybe I need to make a couple and put them in my yard in hopes of trying to get some to come and eat!

Your blue jay looks very happy about your crafty creation and looks good accented with it too.

The wreaths look good to me and the jay looks like he really enjoys the food.

Jill said...

I really like your wreaths! and may need to try that myself. The squirrels may get it here too, but you know I like to watch them too.

Ms. Math said...

Those wreaths are a very neat idea! What a great way to invite birds to your house so you can get some beautiful photos. It's a win-win situation for everyone. :)
