Pine Cone Bird Feeders



I can remember making these when I was a kid. This is also a great way to build up karma as well by providing food for birds when food is scarce. Make sure and hang them in places were they can eat and not be in danger of getting attacked by cats or anything else.

Use a pipe cleaner and tie it around the narrow end of the pine cone. Then cover the pine cone in peanut butter. Make sure you push it down into all the gaps and everything. Then you simply roll the pine cone in bird seed. Its recommended that you let them sit out overnight in cold air so that the peanut butter will get nice and hard and then hang it in the branches of a very sturdy tree. If you hang them in a cedar tree or some other evergreen tree they look kind of like Christmas ornaments.
