Easy Bird Feeder

There are lots of ways to make a bird feeder, but I think this is one of the easiest and most fun to make. It is an excellent craft for children to do because the end product looks good with only a minimal amount of skill needed.

You could also glue some twigs in place for perches or use pretty ribbon for hanging instead of string or yarn.



  1. Put the bird food on a flat surface. I used a mix of wild bird seed and dried mealworms.
  2. Spread the cardboard tube with peanut butter or tahini. If the peanut butter is too thick to spread easily, mix in a little nut or seed oil.
  3. Roll the tube in the bird food. If there are any patches where the food hasn't stuck, add some more peanut butter or tahini and apply more food by hand.
  4. Thread yarn or string through the middle of the tube and tie ends together.
  5. Hang your feeder in the garden out of reach of cats.
