Feather a Nest

A got this idea from a craft show, they were selling filled for $18.00. I spent $3.00 for the suet feeder, bought at our grocery store.
Inside are pieces of yarn and stripes cut from a holey wool sock. I was thinking I could have also cut up an old sweater. You could even buy a cheap skein of yarn.
Per the craft show, the birds like to pick through for the pieces that are appealing to them.
I'm going to hang near our bird feeders come spring time. Come quick spring.
Start collecting your scraps over the winter and you can also feather a few nests for the birds in your neighborhood. I think I'm going to continue to collect and make a second one.
