If you have a bunch of random scraps of yarn and fiber hanging around, this DIY bird nester is a great Spring project. All you need is a tea light lantern, some scrap fiber, and a 20 inch piece of yarn or twine.
1. Stuff the tea light full of yarn, fiber, fabric, or string; all natural materials are best in order to be eco-friendly. I used raw wool, cotton and wool yarn pieces, and cotton thread. Make sure the pieces are small and lightly packed so they are easy for the birds to grab.
2. Close the top of the tea light and tie the 20 inch piece of yarn or twine to the top ring.
3. Hang from a branch in your yard and watch the birds come snag pieces for their nests!
