I finally finished my project …. I converted our dead christmas tree into a bird feeder….. I covered styrofoam balls in peanut butter then rolled them in bird seed. I also found some old plastic lids, punched a hole, tied some ribbon through them, and covered them in peanut butter and bird seed, too. and I also found some little plastic cups (I think Mom saved them from when we had those little ice cream cups you eat with the wooden spoons … Mom saved everything!) so I wired them on the tree and filled them with bird seed too. Not much snow to anchor the dead tree, so I propped it next to a heart-shaped rod-iron plant holder that is firmly frozen in the ground. I used some twine to tie the tree to it. I’ll probably feed more squirrels than birds, but I think Mom would have liked this.
