Bird Feeder Wreath
Winter is a great time to relax and watch a variety of birds visiting your bird feeder wreath. Birds that are used to eating seeds from a traditional feeder will love all the edible seeds they discover in birdseed wreaths. These wreaths provide a variety of dried seed pods including; broom corn, millet, love-lies-bleeding, wheat, sea oats, love-in-a-mist, zinnias, sunflowers, echinacea, and black-eyed-susan. Bird feeder wreaths are perfect for hanging on a shed door, fencing, wall or deck railing.
What You’ll Need:
•A wreath form. We used a form with twisted twigs.
- Create bundles of broom corn, wheat, millet, etc… by tying groups together with twine or wire.
2. Attach each bundle to wreath form with floral wire. We like the “spray” look for wreaths. This means that each dried seed stem is attached in the same direction creating a radial spray.
3. Continue to fill the wreath so that there are no bare spots. The fuller the better, and the birds will be impressed!
Finally, attach a loop of twine to the back of the wreath and hang on a shed door, fencing, wall, or deck railing, preferably in a location where it will be protected from strong winds.
