A Christmas tree for birds can be as simple or ornate as you like. Really easy decorations can be made by threading raisins and peanuts on pieces of string and draping them among the branches. Hang up some fresh apples or pears and slices of orange to add a pop of colour.
Suet balls and cakes tied up with some pretty ribbon will provide birds with much needed energy during the cold winter months. And small pieces of cake or muffins, and bread or toast cut into Christmassy shapes can be replenished with leftovers during the festive season.
