Remember the bird feeder I started making with just found materials? I finally was able to finish it this morning.
I used some cheap-o peanut butter (that’s important, because you’ll use almost the whole jar) and spread it on the pine cones with a knife, filling all the holes. Try to get the top and bottom. It can get messy, so hold on to the pinecone at the top, where it is connected to the braided yarn.
Then pour your bird seed into a bowl, and roll the sticky-peanut buttery-pinecone in the seed. I just got a cheap, “no sprout” mix from my local gardening store, but you can choose multiple kinds of seeds tailored to attracting certain birds.
Then hang your completed bird feeder from a tree and enjoy!
