DIY birdfeed

I remember seeing this idea in a book when I was a kid and randomly recalled it when visiting home. My dad loves it when we have birds in our yard so I decided to make him this eco-friendly DIY bird feeder. Best part was everything was already laying around in my house!

What you need:
  • 1 pinecone
  • peanut butter
  • bird seeds (I used leftover breadcrumbs, but I recommend the seeds)
  • string/twine
Directions: spread the peanut butter with a knife onto the pinecone (careful not to dip back and forth between the pinecone and the jar, you don't wanna contaminate your peanut butter when you eat!). Roll the pinecone into a bowl of birdseed, tie a string onto the cone, and hang on a tree branch! It may be a good idea to tie the string before the peanut butter so you don't get it all messy later.
