thin cardboardsuch as a cereal box
template or cookie cutters
peanut butteror comparable, bird-safe spread
small nail or tapestry needle
Flatten your cardboard and use a template or cookie cutters to draw any shape you like with a pencil. In the center, draw a circle about 1 1/2-inches in diameter. Cut out the shape and the inside circle. TIP: Adults can pierce the center with the nail or needle to help cut out the center.
Use the nail or needle to poke a hole in the top of the shape (adults only). Thread a piece of floral wire through the hole and twist to close.
Pour some birdseed in a tray or dish. Spread a thin layer of peanut butter on the shape. Hold the shape over the tray and cover with bird seed. Turn over to remove excess. Place the ornament on a baking tray lined with wax paper to set. If desired, repeat on the other side (optional).
Hang outside and wait for the birds!
