Martha Stewart’s DIY Bird Feeder Uses An Unexpected Kitchen Item
If you’re wanting to attract more feathered friends during the cooler months, try Martha Stewart’s DIY bird feeder method.
First, you’ll need a small bundt pan, birdseed mix, raw suet, dried fruits, nuts, and twine. Prepare the suet by melting it in a pan until it becomes liquid.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the birdseed with the dried fruits and nuts. Pour the melted suet over the mixture, making sure to coat the birdseed thoroughly.
Press the bird feed mixture firmly into the bundt pan. Place it in the refrigerator for a few hours to harden and set before gently removing it from the pan.
Loop a piece of twine through the middle of the bird feed bundt, and tie it in a tight knot. Hang your bird feeder at a height that's easily accessible for the birds.
