Fall is here and pumpkins are everywhere! With rain coming our way, what is a fun project – we love the idea of a pumpkin bird feeder.  Here is what you can do as a family that will make a nice outdoor decoration…

  1. Go to any local grocery store or nursery and pick up a small pumpkin (3-5 lbs.)
  2. Buy regular bird seeds/supplement at a local pet store
  3. Cut a 3- to 5- pound pumpkin in half
  4. Scoop out the seeds, but leave a ½-inch thick wall
  5. Cut a ½-inch-deep groove in the rim for pumpkin seeds
  6. For perches, poke holes and insert twigs from your yard
  7. To hang, knot two lengths of twine together in the center; tack knot to feeder bottom
  8. Fill with birdseed
  9. Hang anywhere from your porch to a tree in your front yard and enjoy!
