Today is all about the birds. When I had a garden I always fed the birds. One year I made this nut star for them. It's a store bought ready made straw star. Not only was it great for the birds, but it also looked pretty hanging in a tree.

  1. Melt about 1/2 cup lard in a pan.
  2. Let it cool off enough that I could use a brush and sort of paint it on to the star.
  3. Then before the lard cooled I stuck walnuts, hazelnuts etc into the lard. The nuts are great for the birds as are the lard.
  4. Hang it in a tree with a metal wire.
  5. When the nuts are all gone you can always take it in and fill it up with nuts again.
