Approximate Time: 10 minutes each


  • 1 pine cone
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • table knife
  • birdseed
  • a piece of yarn


  1. Take a length of yarn and tie it snugly around the bottom of the pine cone. (Weave it under several layers of the pine cone and tie off.)

  2. Take a table knife and put a thick layer of peanut butter on the pine cone starting at the end you just tied the yarn to. Work your way to the tip spreading generous amounts of peanut butter and getting it between the cracks in the pine cone.

  3. Take the pine cone and lay it into a pile of birdseed. Begin rolling it and patting it firmly until it is completely covered with seeds.
