Bird House Gift Basket

I found these adorable bird houses at Walmart. Of course I had to have one for the cottage.
We are going away this weekend, to visit a friend, so I thought I would do up a gift basket to take along.
I just found a box and wrapped it with paper.
Then I added a bird seed bell with some shredded paper.
I then popped it into a cellophane gift basket bag and tied it with ribbon.
Hope they like it!
I can't wait to hang my bird house up in the spring, I have a few bird houses at the cottage and they are very well used.
There is one that a red squirrel occupies every year, it looks like a log cabin.
I also have one that looks like a train station and is very well used in the spring, when the birds lay there eggs.

What a neat idea! It's a change from the more traditional gift baskets. Birds can have a hard time finding food in the winter!
