Making bird seed bells is actually quite simple, and only requires a few household items. Here's what you'll need: bird seed, clear glue, a balloon, a pen, and a bowl.

1) Begin by blowing up the balloon to the desired size. You'll want to make sure the balloon is big enough to accommodate the amount of bird seed you'll be using.

2) Next, use the pen to make a small hole in the bottom of the balloon. This will be the opening through which you'll add the bird seed.

3) Pour the bird seed into the bowl, and then use the clear glue to coat the outside of the balloon. Be sure to evenly distribute the glue so that the bird seed will adhere properly.

4) Once the glue is dry, carefully pour the bird seed into the balloon through the hole you made earlier. You may need to use a funnel to help guide the seed into the balloon.

5) Once the balloon is full, tie off the end and trim excess balloon material.

Your bird seed bell is now complete! Hang it up outside and enjoy watching the birds come to feed.
