DIY bird feeder


  • Pinecones
  • Twine, ribbon or string
  • Organic peanut butter
  • Organic nuts and seeds
  • Scissors


  1. Simply tie a piece of twine around the pinecone near the top. This would be the perfect time to reuse a large piece of ribbon, string or yarn that you have at home.
  2. Roll the pinecones in the peanut butter until it is completely coated.  You can also use a knife.
  3. Roll the peanut butter covered pinecones in the nuts and seeds until the entire surface of the pinecones are completely covered. Push nuts into the folds of the pinecone for an added bonus.
  4. Choose a place outside where you have seen birds visit before.  Then sit quietly and enjoy watching them!
