The Pinecone Birdfeeder Gets Modern

While outside enjoying the nearly 70 degree temperatures yesterday, we decided to make some birdfeeders using biodegradable materials. We made a couple using the old recipe - a pinecone smeared with peanut butter and rolled in sunflower seeds.



But we also tried a new take on that old favorite - a toilet paper roll smeared with peanut butter and rolled in sunflower seeds. I like this new and improved version of the peanut butter birdfeeder, not only because it uses an item that might otherwise go in the recycle bin, but you don't have to hang it. It can just be slipped over a branch.


The birdfeeder may have taken a modern twist, but the end result is still the same...

  1. Nice idea but don't they get eaten by squirrels?

  2. Duh, I just looked again at the last picture. Guess that answers my question.
