Fiber Nest Filler

As a crafter working with various fibers, I've accumulated unusable bits of ribbon, string and yarn that I cannot bear to throw away.

I put my fiber scraps and laundry lint in plastic fruit netting, and behold! nesting material for our neighborhood birds! Next time I might use a suet feeder.

Now I don't feel guilty for holding on to useless fibres and the spring birds will have warm nests for their chicks.


  1. Great way to declutter. :) And I'm sure the birds will be grateful! A suet holder would definitely be a fab idea.

  2. we've used suet feeders in the past and they work pretty well. but i think using the veg/fruit bags is a great idea..not as pretty as a feeder, but a great way to recycle!
