Creamy Peanut Butter
Twine or String
1. Spread Peanut Butter all over the pinecone. You can also put your peanut butter in a separate bowl and dip or roll your pine cone in it.
2. Pour your Birdseed into a separate bowl.
3. Dip peanut butter coated pine cone into bird seeds.
4. Put a small screw into the bottom of the pinecone and tie Twine around the screw for hanging your pine cone bird feeders.
Optional: Tie twine directly to the pinecone for hanging
Some people have told me they prefer to tie the twine on beforehand, but I’ve noticed when I did it that way with my kids the strings were a mess at the end. So this mama prefers the cleaner way 😉
