There is little love lost between the squirrels and I. Don't get me wrong, I love all animals, but squirrels and pomeranians populate the bottom of my list. Regardless, squirrels live on my land. They inhabit the trees, they taunt Bumblebee (which I think is hilarious) and I decided to give them a small peace offering.
Cordelia and I made a little squirrel feeder to hang on our fence. Th project was super simple.
You need raw unsalted peanuts still in their shell and a wire hanger. Use your brute force, it takes very little, to unwrap the hanger and you'll have a wonky shaped wire. I bent the wire into a roughly circular shape, leaving the loop on top for hanging.
Use either the end of the hangar or a toothpick to poke holes through the peanuts. Do up a big pile and then let your helper thread them onto the wire.

Finally we hung it up outside on the fence. I would recommend that you bend the wire to make sure it cannot be removed as we watched a squirrel grab and make off with the entire wreath.
