The string feeder is an easy way to use items you already have at home to feed the local wild birds. You can hang these from
tree branches, string them around
bushes, or even wrap them around your deck railings. They will attract many kinds of birds.
String of yarn
STEP ONE: Loop the yarn through
the eye of the plastic needle. Pull
the yarn so that you have a double
strand. It will be stronger this way.
STEP TWO: Cut the yarn and tie
a knot at the end of the two strands.
STEP THREE: String popcorn,
cranberries, raisins, oranges, apples, and
even bread cubes onto the yarn. The more
fruit you use, the more colorful. When you
get to the end of the string, leave 2 inches
of yarn and tie another knot on this end.
STEP FOUR: Hang your feeder.
