Halloween is a fab time of year to get creative in the garden. Why not have a go at making this Spooky Fat Ball Feeder for your garden birds?
Providing food for garden birds is a great way to help wildlife in your garden. Fat balls offer a great high energy treat for birds any time of year but especially in autumn and winter months.
You'll need the following items:
Spooky Salad Servers (£1 from Asda), a scrap of wood, two screws and a cable tie.
Hand saw, Drill, Screwdriver

Step 1: Put It All Together
Carefully drill a hole in the end of the handle of each hand.
Attach the spooky salad server hands to the piece of timber using a couple of screws.
Fix a cable tie around the pair of hands mid way along their handles. This will add a little extra tension between the hands and will help securely hold the fat ball.
Step 2: Fix Your New Spooky Fat Ball Feeder Into Position
Attach the Spooky Fat Ball Holder to a fence or your shed and place a fat ball securely in the hands. Then step back and wait for your first visitors to arrive!
