How to Make Your Own Peanut Butter Bird Feeder

You can also very easily make your own pine cone peanut butter bird feeder to hang from trees. This is a very fun project to do with kids!

Materials Needed

1 large pine cone
1-2 tablespoons of peanut butter
1 cup of small bird seed
1 10 inch piece of yarn

With a knife, spoon, or spatula (depending on what age of kids you may be working with), carefully spread the peanut butter along the pine cone. It is okay to be generous with the peanut butter, as the more peanut butter you use, the better the bird seed will stick to it.

Once Your pine cone is covered in peanut butter, the next step is to roll the pine cone in the bird seed, covering it as much as possible.

Next, we’ll attach the piece of yarn at the top to use for hanging your new peanut butter bird feeder. To do this, all you need to do is tie a knot around the ends.

    Is it ok to feed peanut butter to birds in the hot months of summer? I use toilet paper rolls and cover them in peanut butter, then roll in sunflower seeds. The birds love it but I was worried about the hot weather.

      Hi Susan! There is quite a lot of controversy about peanut butter and bird feeders, but in most cases it is considered to be okay. If you are concerned about peanut butter you can also substitute with a suet feeder. Hope that helps answer your question!
