How To Make Easy Pine Cone Bird Feeders

These pine cone bird feeders are so fast and easy to make.

The best part about this craft is that you'll be able to enjoy watching birds come to your house to enjoy your tasty gift!

To make your pine cone bird feeders, start by cutting an 18" piece of twine or whatever you'll use to tie around the top of your pine cone.

Tie the twine around the top of your pine cone approximately 1/2" from the very top.

Use a square knot to secure. 

For a square knot, wrap your left 'tail' over your right, make a loop and pull, then wrap your left tail over your right tail and pull to secure. That'll do it!

Now, you'll want to smother that pine cone in creamy peanut butter. Doesn't it smell good?!

Please don't eat the same peanut butter that you use on your pine cones.

When you've covered your pine cone in a nice thick coat of peanut butter, roll it around in your flat pan of bird seed.

Push the bird seed up and under all those pine cone scales to make sure it sticks well.

If you like, pop your pine cone bird feeders in the fridge or freezer for 30-60 minutes to harden the peanut butter and secure the bird seed. This step is entirely optional!

Now, you're ready to hang your bird feeders
