The Genius Way Clothespins Can Bring More Colorful Birds To Your Yard
There are a number of spins on how to make a clothespin bird feeder, but most of them require the same essential items: clothespins, glue, peanut butter, birdseed, and some type of card stock paper or cardboard (think: old shoeboxes or cereal boxes). TikTok user @playtime_and_parenting altered that slightly by using pumpkin and sunflower seeds rather than a standard mix, but otherwise, the methodology is the same.
To make your own clothespin bird feeder, simply cut a shape out of the cardboard/paper, then glue it to the clothespin. People who want to get extra festive can trace holiday shapes onto the cardboard and produce their own creative feeders, like these Halloween-themed ones by TikTok user @littlepinelearners. Spread peanut butter all over the paper, then sprinkle it with birdseed or dip it into a mixture. Walk it outside and clip the clothespin to a branch that it can securely latch onto. Then sit back with a cold beverage and enjoy all of the new feathery visitors to your property!
