If you’re thinking that holiday decorating is for the birds, you might be right. For many, their outdoor decor serves several purposes: it celebrates the season, feeds the birds, and is an enjoyable Thanksgiving-weekend activity.
Many of you might remember stringing popcorn and cranberries to put on a tree for the birds. While this is still fun and charming, using suet and birdseed is more nourishing for winged creatures. Here are some ideas for creating decorations that the birds will love.
You can either make your own bird-feeding decorations, or use suet cages on wreaths and swags that you purchase or make yourself. (Come into the store to see the variety of suet-holders that can be used.) Here are some examples of swags with suet cages, and instructions for how you can create your own bird-feeding ornaments out of pine cones, bird seed, and either suet or peanut butter.
