      Every year on Easter my husband and I use the yarn in our Easterbaskets that we've used as stuffer instead of that "grass" tinsel stuff and we'll cut it up into pieces and throw it outside and have a blast trying to spot our charity yarn in their birds nests but this idea is even greater than scattering the yarn out all over the lawn.

    Tea set bird feeders You will need: Old cups and saucers, matching or not A pencil Cloth-backed coarse grade sandpaper An all-purpose glue or hot glue gun Fishing line, or hanging hooks for bird feeders, available from specialty stores

    GREAT IDEA!! NO BUGS!! All you need is a package of Mason jars, some cotton string and some liquid citronella (find it in big jugs at any home-improvement store and even some grocery stores). Use a hammer and nail to poke a hole in the top of the lid, then pour in the citronella, put the top on and drop in the wick. Allow the string about 10 minutes to soak up some oil.
