This is so simple to do, All you need is a small log and some very basic tools.
I usually make a dozen of these each year for the local infants school, Just mix suet or lard and some bird seed in a bowl, then
stuff the mixture into the holes, hang it on a branch or something... happy birdies!

Step 2: Drill

Hold the log firmly in a vice, or clamp to a bench or table and drill 10 or 12, 25mm holes about 20mm deep.

Step 3: Chamfer

Fit a hook or staple, a round head nail would do even, and attach a length of string.
