DIY Pinecone Bird Feeders

We made the neatest bird feeders last week and I thought I would share with you all!  They were so simple and so much fun to make!  It's one of the projects on our summer to-do list! 

All you need is a few pinecones, some peanut butter and bird seed.

I rolled the pinecones in the peanut butter and used a knife to "smooth" it out a little.  Sweet Girl tried to roll them, but they were a little to prickily for her!  After they were coated, she sprinkled bird seed all over them.

Then she ran (literally) down to the tree to hang them up! 

It's been fun watching the birds (and deer) come and nibble off of our bird feeders.  I have a feeling we will have to make at least one a week to keep up with the demand!!
