Pine Cone Bird Feeders

November 16, 2012

My daughter and I love to make bird feeders every Fall and hang them on a tree right outside our dining room window. We enjoy watching all the different birds land on them and like to keep our Audubon book close-by to see which type of bird it is. Pine cone bird feeders are a super easy craft to do with your little one with minimal clean up.

What you will need:

(2) knives (1 child safe)
(2) 12″ pieces of yarn
(2) pine cones
(1) cup peanut butter
(2) cups bird seed


1.) Tie yarn in a knot at the tip of the pinecone.

2.) Spread a generous amount of peanut butter all over pine cone until completely covered with knife.

3.) Roll pine cone in birdseed until it is completely covered.

4.) Hang from tree (high enough so other animals won’t get into it) and watch birds come and enjoy the  feeder you made :)

    Ok so we did this one at our house and the dogs were clearing 6 feet in the fig to get them…this one was for the dogs. The boys laughed and laughed! It was a great fun OUTDOORS mess.
