I make them for my birds and it is pretty easy just use the flour and water method (no salt if the recipe you has asks for salt).

I usually use water balloons for my smaller birds and coat the newspaper over the top of it using the flour/water paste and allow them to dry. Pop and carefully remove the balloon. You can decorate it with non toxic crepe paper (mine is labeled non toxic not sure if there are toxic ones or not) by using the flour mixture as a glue.

I make lots of them at one time fill and seal/hang and they have a blast.

I've used paper towel tubes to make some. I cut slits into the ends and fold over to seal then decorate with tissue paper. Cut a small hole in the and stuff with treats and shredded tissue paper or news paper. I've used zip ties to attach them to the cage.
