Flower Bird Feeders

Hey gardeners...did you know that birds burn more calories in the winter to stay warm? They store fat during the short days to keep themselves warm during the cold nights. Even though most birds are well equipped to survive the chilliest of days, providing a food source for birds during the winter can be very helpful to help keep their energy sources replenished. Feeding winter birds can be a fun and educational activity for gardeners of all ages.

That's why today's new 'gardening tool' on the #PullYourWeeds® Blog, we are putting a flowery spin on #DIY bird feeders. This easy and affordable craft is fun for gardeners of all ages with tons of #SEL benefits. Scroll all the way down to earn your gardening tool badge for this activity!

Gardener Kelsey's Tip: We suggest only creating and hanging gelatin feeders in the wintertime as the colder temperatures prevent gelatin from molding/melting. Gelatin birdseed feeders are approved by many peer-reviewed organizations, including the Cornell Lab of Ornithology.

Thank you to Melissa from Fireflies & Mudpies her #DIYBirdFeeders gave us the inspiration to make these flowery feeders!

A friendly reminder to keep our flying friends safe, it’s always recommended to remove any waste seed left on the ground.
