Alright here is one for all the bird lovers out there!
Peanuts or Nesting Material
Easy way - Take a wire hanger and stretch it out until it has a relatively round shape. This can be a little difficult but I used the pliers and did it fairly easily. A trick to this is to take a large pan like one used for pasta and put the hanger around it. Use the pliers to smooth it out.
Next you take a slinky and at one end put it around the hanger. You are basically going to spin the slinky around until it is over the hanger. Now take one end of the slinky and with the pliers make a U. Put the U over the top of the hanger. For a reference look at the picture above. Once around the hanger use the pliers and squeeze the U closed. Then take the other end of the slinky and stretch it around the hanger untill it reaches the top on the other side. Again make a U and put it around the top of the hanger. Then with the pliers close the U.
Finally fill the slinky with peanuts. The best way is to pour them in from the top of one side of the hanger.
The harder way is to cut the hanger and put the slinky over it. Then take the end and again make a U and place over the top of the hanger. Squeeze the U closed and continue with the rest of the process as above.
