    Oh great idea! It's like paper mache! (sp?) I might just have to try it.

    And thanks so much for the checks. Made perfect sense to me!

    A few layers, well dried in between the layering have to be done, depending on the degree of difficulty you want for the birds getting into it. Beak size and destruction ability lol.

    no I am not done yet one more coat should be good. Last time I made these I used condoms. I did not have any balloons and I am fixed so I don't need condoms.

    I make these for my lovebirds . If I was making them for my cockatiels then I would only do 2 layers. I would also make a bigger hole that they could get into. At first some of my birds where afraid of them. I usually put shredded paper and other nesting materials in it. Its great for nesting birds. but if you don't want them to nest I would put food and toys in it. I think I am going to put popcorn, Cheerios and shredded paper in it this time.

    Re: how to make a birdie pinata

    Just thought I would say that I started making one of these today! I only had small balloons though. I think I'm going to give this one to Eeyore and the next one to the other too unless I get more balloons of course than I will make one for both of them. haha. I just got done with the first cost so I'm waiting for it to dry so I can add the other layers. What do you guys think about drying it with a hair dryer?

    I would just leave it overnight Jake, I don't know if you'd get it dried evenly with a hairdryer. =)

    Re: how to make a birdie pinata

    well I did not add the third coat as I have been busy . I am just going to go with the two coats. I had to scrap it off the floors and wash my floors I just got done doing that. So I am going to take a bit of a break now. I got shredded paper, Raffia and wood shavings to fill them with. I also got popcorn that I am going to put in the air popper. And I got Cherrieo's too to put in them. I wish i had some nuti-berries to put in them. I am going to put some cinnamon sticks in them too.

    Re: how to make a birdie pinata

    I would say two James.
    I'm putting three on for my grey but I think 2 would be good for a tiel.

    Re: how to make a birdie pinata

    ok now what I am going to put in them. you can also put organic dried fruit, nuts, nutri-berries, avi-cakes, and other dried food in it. you can decorate the outside with shredded paper if you like. Just put the flour and water on one end and stick it to the Balloon. The other end will hang off of it giving it a fluffy appearance.

    paper I shredded myself. it helps if you have a paper shredder like I do.


    This is called crinkle paper I got it from the dollar store. I do not get the colored paper as I do not know what it is died with


    Shaved wood hair from the dollar store.

    Raffia from the dollar store.

    plain cheerrios

    jumbo air popped popcorn I got this from the balk food store

    Cinnamon sticks from the dollar store. They make it smell nice.

    And you can not forget the millet spray.
