This hanging bird table provides a great way to feed the birds in your garden. The Christmas snack tray adds a lovely festive twist. A great project to do with young children adding a little extra #WildTime into their day!
Collect all your materials together. I found the festive snack plate and the plastic picnic plate in the local discount store for £1 each!
Drill four holes in the snack tray and the picnic plate
Apologies! I forgot to take a photo of this stage. Drill four 4mm diameter holes equally spaced around the edge of both the snack tray and the picnic plate. Check out the photo of the finished bird table as a guide if you need to.
I used four drinking straws to act as spacers between the snack tray base and the picnic plate roof. I found that cutting the straws just under the bendy part left the perfect length.
I then used two lengths of string (approx. 800mm each) and passed the ends of each piece up through the holes in the snack tray, through the straws, through the picnic plate and then tied the ends together to create the hanging loop.
All that’s left to do is hang it in a tree, fill it with bird seed and wait for the birds to arrive!
