My Monday Make
Today's make is fat feeders for the birds
1 bag of bird seed from the pound shop
empty coconut shells, I have kept these there were originally fat feeders I bought, you can use yogurt pots of butter containers, just make a hole near the rim and knot some string in it before filling.
wen cooking meat I drain off the fat and keep it in a container and then use it for the fat feeders
melt the fat, you don't need it hot just melted into liquid
stir in the bird seed mix, I use 2 parts seed to 1 part fat, give it a good stir to coat the seeds
pour into your containers and leave somewhere cool to set,
hang up for the birds to enjoy
I worked out it cost me about 20p to make 9 feeders that's a considerable saving, I have seen these feeders 99p each in the shops.
