I like this idea. I have clay that I have been wanting to use for something and this would be a perfect project for it. I have several feeders but none like this one. My birds would love it.

The "clay" does not excite me but I found Vanity Fair paper plates in the grocery store that are supposed to be disposable that look just like this bowl. I rewash them in the dishwasher and they look like new. What a simple craft! The kids will love it as well as the birds. Would work great for a quick and simple bird feeder. Love the way they did the knots.

I have never worked with clay before but it looks very simple to do. This is so neat, but it would more likely be called a squirrel feeder than a bird feeder where I am! Nevertheless, it would be fun to make with the grandkids. Maybe to send home with them so Mom and Dad can figure out the squirrel angle.
