Did you enjoy your Halloween? While you may be spending your morning cleaning up small candy wrappers and trying to get your kids out of bed after they crashed after their sugar high – I’d like to ask you a question:
“What are you going to do with your pumpkin?”
Before tossing it in the trash can (or compost pile) – how about getting a little more use out of it and create a pumpkin bird feeder?
Last year, I took my heirloom pumpkin and transformed it into a bird feeder.
Needless to say, the birds were thrilled and my kids and I had fun seeing how many different birds visited our pumpkin feeder.
**You can make your own pumpkin feeder and I recently wrote “how to” post for Birds & Blooms Magazine. You can find my blog post, “Backyard Project: DIY Pumpkin Bird Feeder”.
So how about you? What do you do with your pumpkins after Halloween?
