Step 1: Get Your Materials at the Ready & Start
You'll need some wooden twigs and a piece of yarn.
Tie the wooden twigs together with the yarn and string the yarn around two opposing twigs to form the warp.
Step 2: Weave in the Nesting Goodies
Now that you have your frame, start your weft using anything birds like for nest building. Personally I used scraps woolen roving from different kinds of sheep combined with hay, but straw would work just as well. You could sneak in a bit of birdfood for a little birdy snack.
Step 3: Done!
Tie a cord to the top, hang it outside and wait for the birds to discover the birDIY-store that just opened in your garden!
