Picture this:


It’s 6 am and the sun is just starting to come up. You’re sitting at your kitchen table, coffee on one side, breakfast on the other. You look out your window and there, at the small tree in your front yard, the local bird population is feeding…from the homemade bird feeder that you made.


These homemade bird feeders are so very simple to make! They’d make for a great summer craft project with your kids or just a boredom buster for you!


You will need:

Cardboard paper towel or toilet paper tubes

Creamy Peanut Butter

Bird Seed

A tray for rolling


Step 1: Remove any glue or paper residue from your cardboard tubes


Step 2: Roll tubes in the peanut butter, making sure that it’s coated well.


Step 3: Roll tubes in bird seed, again making sure that it’s coated well.


Step 4: Head outside and slip over your nearest branch!



That’s it! So simple, right!


Happy crafting!
