How to Make Christmas Wreaths for the Birds

Wreaths are used traditionally to decorate your home during the holiday season, but how rewarding it is to provide for wildlife that visit your home looking for food. One of our holiday traditions was to string popcorn, peanuts and raisins to decorate outdoor evergreens for the wildlife. It was a fun evening doing it and a delight to watch it being enjoyed.

Here's a site that gives you instructions to make a special wreath that, when hung outside, will attract and delight hungry birds: Wreaths For The Birds

Last year our son sent us a wreath for our door as a gift and we discovered that wrens were roosting in it overnight, so after the holidays we moved it to a better location on the porch and left it there till Spring at which time the wrens left and the finches took it over and built a nest in the center. What a delight!
