1. Mix together dry grass, fluffy seed heads, straw, feathers, hair, wool and thread.


2. Cut the end off a forked stick. Wrap the material around the stick. Secure with wool.


3. Add more layers until a large bundle is formed (keep the lengths of the wool and string short).


4. Hang the bundle in a tree. Remove any loose wool threads as the bundle is depleted.
