In the spring, and in the summer, as never before, I want to direct all my skill in needlework to create crafts to decorate the interior of a country house or summer cottage. In this regard, I want to suggest that you use junk material – old unnecessary newspapers or magazines, and weave just such a decorative bird feeder out of tubes. In this version, newspaper tubes are painted with stain; upon completion of weaving, the feeder is covered with three layers of varnish. It is thanks to the varnish that this braid will become strong and waterproof. It can be hung outdoors, on the veranda or on the balcony. I suggest you to watch a master class that will help to cope with the weaving of a guest house for birds)
