The ground is still covered with snow around here, but the birds have already started to come back from their winter holidays. My mom is really good at feeding the birds, so every winter the garden is usually full of them. I quite like having the bird chirping away outside my living room window, so I went out and bought a bag of bird seed mix to keep them happy. It's been quite a windy winter though, so I didn't realize until I got home that the wind had blown the birdhouse down. Since there's quite a lot of cats in our neighbourhood I didn't really think just sprinkling the seeds on the ground would be a very good idea and thus decided to make my own bird feeder in stead.
These bird feeders are really simple, as they're basically just birdseeds on a string. The birds loved them though, and I could hear them getting excited already when I was outside hanging them up in the apple tree. Making these is really easy, and you probably already have most of the supplies at home. You will of course need some sort of bird seed mix. You will also need some gelatin to make the seeds stick together, some strings to have something to hang your bird feeders with, and some moulds. I used some yoghurt pots that I cleaned out (after eating the yoghurt, obviously).
