Last winter when I redid an old rocking chair I had, I kept the springs from the cushion. The girls thought I was nuts, what would I ever use them for? Well for starters I have some ideas for Christmas, but I also have some other ideas too.
Let me start by telling you about our yard. We have two lots and a bunch of trees and most of them attract squirrels – two large and one HUGE oak tree, two black walnut trees, two large pecan trees, a medium sized maple and two pine trees. Needless to say we have several squirrels in residence. They love to raid the dog food and bird feeder as most squirrels do. I decided the need a little variety – ears of corn.
I used a spring from the chair. I just attached a good length of wire to hang it and put some wire back and forth across the top so they don’t take the entire ear of corn. And yes I made sure there were no wires poking out where they could hurt a squirrel.
Not bad for stuff I had on hand.
