Winter is also a time when the birds are looking for food. With this aesthetic creation of wax and seeds, the birds can enjoy a delicious feast for days on end. It’s also a great way to spot the most beautiful birds in your garden.

Step 2: Mix the bird feed in it and knead the mixture in a ball shape.
Step 3: Cut the oranges in half and hollow them out.
