Eco friendly Winter Bird Feeders!


If you have children who live for hoarding natures treasures and need something to do with all those lockdown toilet rolls this ones for you!


Pine Cone Winter Bird Feeder!


Materials Needed:


1) Pine Cone

2) Peanut Butter

3) Twine for Hanging

4) Bird Seed


Method: Simply tie the twine in a loop around the top of the pinecone to create a hanging string to attach to branches when finished! Using a spoon, spread the peanut butter around the base of the pine cone, evenly coating it as much as possible. Then sprinkle or dip the coat of peanut butter in some bird seed and allow to set for a few hours. (Either in a fridge or outside in the winter would be fine!) Hang out for your local wild birds to enjoy!



Toilet Roll Winter Bird Feeder!

Materials Needed:


1) Toilet Roll Cardboard

2) Peanut Butter

3) Twine for Hanging

4) Hole Punch or pencil to pierce cardboard

5) Bird Seed

6) Small Twigs or Sticks (X2 per feeder)


Method: Using a hole punch or pencil make four holes in the bottom of the toilet roll to create even holes for the twigs to go through for the birds to perch on. Once completed, create a further two holes opposite each other at the top of the toilet roll, to tie your twine loop around which will create a hanging string to attach to branches when finished.


Using a spoon, spread the peanut butter around the base of the toilet roll, evenly coating it as much as possible. Then sprinkle or dip the coat of peanut butter in some bird seed.

Using two twigs or sticks, place them crossing eachother through the four holes at the bottom of the feeder and allow to set for a few hours.

(Either in a fridge or outside in the winter would be fine!)


Hang out for your local wild garden birds to enjoy!



You could even make a tally chart of all the different types of

birds you see dropping by for a nibble!

Have fun getting creative!


Love, Katie
