Step 1: Collect Your Materials

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.

Step 2: Draw THe Outline of the Seed Ports

Using a pencil or marker pen draw out the outline of the seed ports. This will help you cut it out neatly.

Step 3: Cut Out the Seed Ports

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!!)

Step 4: First Seed Port Cut Out

When you’ve finished cutting around the outline the seed port should look like this.

Step 5:

Cut out the seed port on the opposite side of the wrist.

Step 6: Drill Hole Through Finger and Create Hanging Loop

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 together in a knot.

Step 7: Drill Holes for Perch

Drill two small holes on either side of the wrist below the seed ports. Push through the BBQ skewer and trim.

Step 8: Hang Your New Severed Hand Bird Feeder!

Hang your new Halloween Severed Hand bird feeder in the garden and wait for the birds to arrive!

    You could have red string as veins coming out of the bloody end and hang fat balls on them...
