Junkin for the Birds

 I found this idea on pinterest and was a fun little project to use up odd bits of yarn for birds to build their nests nice and cozy! I wrapped the yarn around my hand and then cut it off at the top and bottom this made about 4 inch strips.
 I had this wire thing I got free out of a free box at a yard sale, it looks like a pocketbook it probably had gift hand lotion in it at one time.  I believe the one on pinterest used a suet bird feeder, so if you have some scrap yarn look around your junk stash and see if you can find something that you can use, all it needs is holes for the birds to pick their favorite color and something for the birds to hold on to.
 I did add some spanish moss in the bottom jsut cause I had it also raffia could be used for a more natural materials.I used more yarn to tie it to a tree near a window, hoping to see some birdies make a visit!
Junkin for the Birds!


  1. Awe that is sweet. I love doing things for my birds too and we look forward to watching them raise their little hatchlings every spring. I make rag quilts and I shake out the loose threads and put them out for the birds to pick up. Love the wire basket and yarn idea, thanks for sharing.

  2. From one home to another! I also save the dryer lint for the birdies.

  3. great idea.. i know the birds in my trees would love this!!!
    thanks, Sheree
