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!

    A momma bird is building a nest in my door wreath so I moved the wreath to a safer spot (a nearby window) and made one of these filled with dryer lint, Timothy hay & small pieces of spare yarn. Last spring I was brushing my pet rabbit outside & a bird grabbed the fur that I let float into my grass! Birds are so clever! Thank you for this Ible!
