Gather the popsicle sticks, thick beads, pipe cleaners, and string.
Braid the strings until they will securely hold the beads.
Tie a large knot at the end of the sting.,
On the small side of the knot (1or 2 inches on the small side of the knot) do your best to fray them a lot.,
Using the drill, make a hole through the center of all of the popsicle sticks.,
Slide a popsicle stick on the big string that has large the knot on it.
Slide a thick bead on right on top of the popsicle stick.
Repeat steps 6 and 7 until you have seven popsicle sticks on the string.
Make another big knot right after the seventh popsicle stick.
Go up the string/braided string 1 1/2 inches (3cm), then tie another large knot.
Grab two pipe cleaners and twist them together.,
With the pipe cleaners, tie the length to the cage so that your parakeet can use it.,
,, Make the knot big enough that the beads can’t slide off.
, This is fun for the bird to chew on and play with.
, Make the hole large enough for the strings to pull through, yet make it a snug fit.
,,,,,, Twist the pipe cleaners around the big knot and keep twisting until you are satisfied it will hold it together. Alternatively, while you were tying the big knot, you could have inserted these at that time.
, Shape the popsicle “branches” so they form a spiraling “ladder”.
