Tastemakers Presents: DIY Bird Seed Ornaments

Posted by on Tue, May 13th, 2014 at 12:00 pm

It’s time to share the DIY & recipe love with the newest edition of Swagbucks Tastemaker. Our Tastemakers are not only stellar Swagbucks members, but bloggers or online influencers in their own right outside of our community. They’re from all over the Swag Nation, but they all have one thing in common: they love to share tricks and ideas to make great recipes and DIY projects. Now, we get to share their tips with you!

This week’s Tastemaker is Kaley from Cha-ching on a Shoestring. She’s all about living large on a limited budget, and her lovely blog reflects that with freebies and store deals, tips on couponing, and how-tos. The DIY craft we’re sharing with you today was dreamt up during the holiday season, and it’s definitely a simple and fun way to decorate with the kids — Pin it for later! BUT, it’s also a great project to do right now – a bird seed ornament (a simple and very cute bird feeder for any time of year).

With Kaley’s help, you can make these bird seed ornaments to hang from a tree in your yard and make the most of the budding spring season with a little bird watching from home. It only takes 4 steps and a few supplies, so click through to Kaley’s blog to learn how! Read more here
