Pinecone Bird Feeder

how to make bird feeders from pinecones & peanutbutter


  • Pinecones
  • Yarn, ribbon or string
  • Birdseed
  • Peanut butter
  • Knife or spoon

1) Tie yarn or string securely around the end of the pinecone.

2) Using a knife or the back of a spoon, cover the pinecone with peanut butter.

3) Roll the pinecone in birdseed.  An easy way to do this is to pour the birdseed onto a plate.

4) Tie the birdfeeder to a tree and let the birds enjoy eating and the children enjoy watching.

Hint:  If you are doing this with a large group of children, consider using paper plates to pour the birdseed onto.  Also use plastic knives or spoons as this will make cleanup a breeze.
