How to make

Step 1

Gather your peanut butter, bird feed and old loo rolls. Pop your bird seed in a container/ bowl big enough to fit your loo or kitchen rolls in.

Step 2

Punch two holes opposite each other at the top of the loo roll- this is where your twine will tie

Step 3

Cover your roll in peanut butter (you could also use normal butter). Be careful not to cover over your hole for your twine

Step 4

Pop your peanut butter cover roll into the seed and roll until covered

Step 5

Thread your twine through the holes and tie to create your own hanging bird feeder.
