Make a reusable pine cone bird feeder

If you are like us and have a continuous stash of pine cones that keep appearing in the house, then this is a great way to put them to good use!

What you will need:

  • Nature Nurture Kids Bird Food

  • Pine cones

  • Peanut Butter (no added sugar or salt)

  • Old paint brush

  • Natural string

Step 1

Cut a length of string and tie it around the top of a pine cone to create a loop for hanging your feeder.

Step 2

Holding the string, use an old paintbrush to paint the peanut butter all over the pine cone, making sure to get into the gaps where you can.

Step 3

Once covered, push the pine cone into a bowl/plate of bird seed, rolling it around until it is completely covered in seeds. You can also use your fingers to push the bird food into the peanut butter making sure it sticks.

Step 4

Once covered, head outside and find a shaded spot in the trees and hang your feeder on a branch.

Our pine cone feeders are always very popular with our garden birds - they are always empty by end of the day!

TIP: Once the birds have eaten all the seeds, you can reuse the pine cone by adding peanut butter and seeds again!
