Holiday Makers Workshop – Decorate a Bird Feeder!
Come have some fun with us this December and decorate your very own bird feeder on December 14, 2019, 9am-1pm! Birds need more food in cold weather to stay warm, so having a place to grab a snack is a great way to attract lots of feathered friends!
This Maker’s Workshop is open to all ages.
These feeders make great gifts for the wild bird lovers in your life, for starting a new hobby of bird watching, as well as making fun holiday decorations for your family (should you decide to “deck the halls” with your bird feeder!) – or you can just put one out for your own backyard bird friends!
DIY Decoration Station
We’ll have a DIY Decoration Station set up for you at the store to customize your bird feeder which will include acrylic paints (low/no VOCs), brushes, and more (whatever Marissa finds in her immense crafting stash!).
You can also bring your own decorations to add to the mix if you know you want your bird feeder to look a certain way! We’ll give you the space to make a mess and you won’t have to worry about paint in your carpet 😉 (or glitter, everywhere…)
Includes Our Most Popular Shell’s Bird Seed Mix!
Your feeder will include a 1 lb bag of Shell’s Wild Bird Seed Mix – Mr. Shell’s backyard birds have endorsed this mix with a 5-star rating!
Want to learn more about what kinds of seed specific birds like? Check out my article here.
Other Bird Seeds, Feeders, & Bird Houses Will Be Available for Purchase…
…including some that are plain wood, and you can decorate those too at this event! You can set up a great area for your feathered friends to eat, and live…and you can watch the drama in their lives out the window!
You’ll have the opportunity to make your own kind of mix from our Weigh Station while you are here (for an additional fee) – just ask an associate to help you!

For reasons we hope are obvious, this is a pick up in store item ONLY.
Also, children must be supervised by a parent or guardian, as our staff will be trying to help everyone who attends plus other customers who come to get other products during the day.
