Christmas Tree Reuse for Backyard Birds

Houston Texas USA

Project Description


After seeing all of the suggestions for utilizing Christmas trees after the holidays, our family set the tree in our backyard and crafted a variety of treats for birds to hang as ornaments. In addition to helping provide the birds with some extra protein and nourishment in the wintertime, the tree offers a small amount of additional shelter, and extra material for building nests.

For the ornaments, we made:

– Pine cones covered in peanut butter and dipped in birdseed

– Strings of apple and orange slices

– A hanging apple bowl with birdseed and fruit chunks

– Suet chunks covered in extra birdseed (YUM)

– Hanging Spanish moss as tinsel (for extra nesting material)
