Pine Cone Bird Feeder

One of my favorite things about our old house – I swear I’ll eventually stop bringing it up – was sitting at the kitchen table enjoying my breakfast and watching the birds outside.   I can’t help it, I’m an animal lover.  Especially when the animal is more afraid of me than I am of it.  And not having to clean up after them is another bonus. I often referred to them as “my birds”.  At one point I tried to name them (omg, I’m more like my mom than I thought).  (Love you Mama!!!)

So here at our new place, I wanted to get on the good side of our new feathery neighbors.   The girls and I found some pine cones along our new walking route which are way nicer than the cones from our old trail. (New house: +1) Grabbed a few more supplies and made a few bird feeders.

Pine Cone Bird Feeders

Supplies: Pine cones, any size.  Smooth peanut butter.  Bird seed.  Yarn, ribbon, or string.

Directions: Using a butter knife (or your finger) spread a thin layer of peanut butter onto each opened scale.  Sprinkle generously with bird seed.  Attach a yarn and hang on a tree.

The little guys devoured these. Yay!
