we found a face on sale for $5, you just gave me the idea to use sand to make copies of the one I have using either a pour able resin or plaster of paris. More thought could be given about making  a casting to make permanent molds and using foods to make the faces with peanut butter and grains other things to make it stiff.....hummmmm more about this later.

why not try making them out of food for the birds. a nose could be some fruit of some kind, bagles for huge eyes/glasses, if you smother them with peanut butter then seeds oh boy! , banana for a smile, butterflies will go after that, if you use very small nails-they should not hurt the tree, of course keep using the same nail holes once your food is all gone, my guess you will get very creative after you make a few, plu syour feathered friends will love you to!   :) of course post the pics before the birds devor them.  or if you just want the faces without any other critter appeal- use stuff like shells, rocks, drift wood all natural stuff, hot glue gun will keep all that on the tree for a bit.
