How to Make a Bird Feeder

When choosing the cookie cutter shapes, have fun! They can really be of anything that you want!
Start by using the cookie cutters to cut out the middle of the bread.
Once you’ve got the shapes cut out, you’re going to want to carefully poke a pipe cleaner through each shape and then twist the ends together.
Once that is complete, take and spread peanut butter over each shape and then place the peanut butter side down into a bowl of birdseed. Make certain that you press down firmly but gently to coat the entire shape.
You’re only going to be doing one side as per this recipe, but if you really wanted to try both sides, go for it! It just might be a little bit messy but what’s the harm in that?

They’re the perfect size to hang outside without worry.
Once you’ve coated the side, remove and it’s ready to hang on a fence, tree, or plant hook.
They’re the super simple DIY bird treats!
If you only coat one side, hanging from the fence is a great idea since only one side will be accessible.
We used thumb tacks to hang them because all of the kids wanted to make them which means we had a lot to hang. It worked really well since they go in easy and don’t leave a big hole.
You can also use plant hangers if you want to always have a few to hang your bird feeders on to.
And hanging them side by side gives the birdies a chance to dine with a friend!
