Orange Bird Feeders


  • Orange
  • Twine
  • Sticks
  • Wooden beads
  • Knife
  • Spoon
  • A long nail


  1. Cut off top of the orange, about ½ inch from the top of the orange and scoop out the fruit with a spoon.

  2. Using the nail, punch 4 holes through the orange rind, 2 directly across from each other; push sticks through for the bird to sit on. (The sticks will go through the orange rind parallel.)

  3. Tie a knot with the twine on each stick where the stick meets the orange. Gather the four pieces of twine and knot at the top. This becomes your bird feeder’s hanger.

  4. Knot four strands of the twine together to create a tassel. Decorate it by sliding small, wooden beads onto the twine and hold in place with a dab of glue.

  5. Punch a hole in the bottom of the orange with the nail and push the knot up through the hole in the orange so that it hangs.
