Make a DIY pomegranate bird feeder in just a few minutes. Madeline and I made ours with a few bruised pomegranates we had left over from the holidays. We see quite a few cardinals in our yard and I thought a bird feeder might make them stick around a little while longer. Now I realize we are probably feeding more squirrels than birds—but we are going to give it a try.
Slice the pomegranate in half and scoop out the flesh leaving a thick edge to support the cord or twine. Then pierce four holes about 1/2″ from the top with a sharp object. (we used the tip of a meat thermometer). String the cord through one hole to another and tie at the top. Repeat with the second two holes. Fill with bird seed, hang from a branch and wait for the birds to discover it. This post inspired by the Orange Bird Feeder my friend Sheri Silver made a few years ago. Thanks Sheri, you always inspire me!
