Day 9 : Make bird feeders using pine cones and peanut butter
You will need:
crunchy peanut butter
|2. Spread newspaper over workspace. In a large bowl, mix equal amounts of corn meal and crunchy peanut butter. We used 1 C corn meal and a little over 1 C peanut butter, which was more than enough for 3 medium-sized pine cones.|
|3. Add bird seed and raisins. Stir well. We used an 11 oz bag of seeds and 1.5 oz box of raisins.|
|4. Now begin spreading the mixture onto the pine cones. A thin layer all around will do. Try to push the mixture up into the petals of the cone without breaking them.|
|6. Once your bird feeder is firmed up from being in the freezer, it is ready to hang!|
