For The Birds

I have been trying to reduce my household waste, using veggie scraps in the garden, shredding paper and using it as mulch, cloth towels instead of paper, etc. I do a lot of crocheting around this time of year. I make blankets, hats, scarves and tons of boot cuffs for my Etsy shop.
 I have tons and tons if yarn snippets left over that I use to throw away. 

I have been trying to think of a way to reuse them and came up with this.
I found these at the Christmas Tree Store 

Its a suet holder, you know the kind that holds those square cake like commercial blocks of suet?

I filled one with some yarn scraps and hung it from a tree.

Now the birds can pick from it and use them to make a nice warm nest for winter.
