How to Make a Pine Cone Bird Feeder

This is a simple project even very young children can do by themselves.

You will need:

  • Large pine cones
  • Corn Meal
  • Shortening (or bacon fat, melted suet, etc.)
  • Bird seed and/or bread crumbs
  • Cake pan
  • String or yarn
Mix Corn meal and shortening. Spread mixture thickly into the crevices and all over the pine cone. Pour bird seed and/or bread crumbs into the cake pan. Dip and roll the pine cone in the bird seed so that it sticks to the mixture and covers the pine cone.

Let this harden overnight, then tie a piece of string or yarn to the very top of the pine cone. Loop the string under the topmost "leaves" of the pine cone and tie a knot in the top. Hang the bird feeder on a tree branch in the yard, and watch the birds flock in!
