Jumping Jack Birdfeeder

This is one of the birdfeeders I made over the weekend. Simple to make, funny to look at.

What you need:

  • net of peanuts (without the shell)
  • 28 peanuts with shell (drill holes in them)
  • 3 pieces of wire (2 x 30 cm, 1 x 40 cm)
  • small flower-pot
  • ribbon

How to:

Take the 40 cm long wire and fold it in half. Put this through the net. Place the flower-pot on top.
Put the ribbon round the neck area, like a tie.
Take 8 peanut and string them to one wire (30 cm). Do the same with the other wire. Roll up the ends of the wire so the won’t fall off.
Stick the wire through the net. The part with 8 peanuts will be the legs. String 6 peanuts to the other side. Roll up the ends.
Hang it outside in your garden.

That’s it. Simple and easy.
