What you will need:

 
  • One or more large pine cones. Choose ones that are open so you can put a lot of birdseed inside
  • Enough bird seed to coat the pine cones
  • Peanut butter that is soft and spreadable
  • Sturdy string to hang the pinecones
  • Scissors
  • Small spatula or popsicle stick to smooth peanut butter on the pinecones
  • Bowl
 
  1. Step One: Tie one end of the string to the top pointy end of the pine cone, making sure to cover enough scales. Make sure it is secure to withstand snow and winter weather.
  2. Step Two: Smooth the peanut butter over the pinecone, covering it completely.
  3. Step Three: Dip the pinecone in the bird seed, making sure to get as much bird seed stuck to the pinecone.
  4. Step Four: Find a tree or other secure location that is difficult for squirrels to reach and tie it securely.
  5. Step Five: Enjoy the view and take pics of the birds that visit your feeder.
