How to make a bird feeder
Help garden birds keep hunger at bay (and little naturalists occupied) with these simple feeders. Simply hang them up in a tree once finished, and watch the wildlife come to you.
Tie string to the top of your pine cone.
Soften the vegetable fat with your hands or a stove.
Add in the bird seed a bit at a time until it sticks together easily.
Gently squash the mixture into all the holes in your pine cone.
Roll the cone in even more seed to coat the outside.
Tie your finished feeder directly onto a tree branch.
