Pinecone & peanut butter bird treats
These are such an easy DIY and great to involves small kids in. You don't need anything fancy and the wild birds (and squirrels) will thank you for their winter treats!
- Peanut butter
- Wild bird seed
- Black oiled sunflower seeds
Tie the twine around the top of the pinecone and form a loop for hanging.
In a small dish, pour some birdseed and sunflower seeds
Cover cookie sheet with aluminum foil
Using a butter knife or spatula cover the entire pinecone in peanut butter.
Roll and press the peanut butter covered pinecone into the seeds.
Place the pinecones on the cookie sheet and pop them in the freezer for 1 hour so they can firm up.
Hang them outside for the birds, making sure to hang them where there is a branch underneath for them to perch on.
