Halloween is a great time of year to get creative in the garden. Why not have a go at making this Severed Hand bird feeder for your garden birds. Wha...
I found the plastic novelty Halloween severed hand for £1 at Tesco. I already had the string and BBQ skewer (not shown) left over from another project...
Using a pencil or marker pen draw out the outline of the seed ports. This will help you cut it out neatly.
Carefully cut out the seed ports using scissors or a stanley knife. DO NOT just use a blade as I am doing in the image above (tut tut!!)
When you’ve finished cutting around the outline the seed port should look like this.
Cut out the seed port on the opposite side of the wrist.
Drill a 4mm diameter hole through the top of the middle finger. Cut a 200mm length of string. Thread one end through the finger and then tie both ends...
Drill two small holes on either side of the wrist below the seed ports. Push through the BBQ skewer and trim.
Hang your new Halloween Severed Hand bird feeder in the garden and wait for the birds to arrive!
