- Milk Jug
- Non-Washable Paint or Permanent Markers
- Pine Needles
- Yarn or Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
- Scissors or Utility Knife
Cut a hole in the side of the milk jug, big enough for a bird.
Paint or color the jug keeping in mind that some of it will be covered by the pine needles.
Select what type of pine needles you are going to work with and how much of the jug you want to cover. You will have to then decide if you want to use hot glue or yarn.
We used yarn on ours and tied it really tightly! My daughter used loose bundles of pine needles and wrapped each with yarn tightly, I used full bundles that were not bigger than my jug and wrapped each around the jug and needles tightly.
Put it outside for the birds to enjoy!
