Pinecone Bird Feeder



MATERIALS




  • Large pinecones
  • Ice pop sticks
  • Mixing bowl
  • Birdseed
  • Natural string
  • Scissors
  • Thumb tacks

STEPS




  1. Place any tight pinecones in a 300-degree oven for about 10 minutes to open them. Use an ice-pop stick to spread a layer of peanut butter or suet all over the inner "petals" of the pinecone. Set the pinecone in a mixing bowl filled with birdseed mix. Roll the pinecone in the seed mixture.
  2. Attach string to the top of the pinecone for hanging. Push a thumbtack into the bottom of the cone, wrap tack with another length of string, and tie to the top of another cone. Repeat process until desired length is achieved. Hang bird feeder, and replenish with birdseed as necessary.
