Feed the Birds: ​How to Make a DIY Ice Cream Cone Bird Feeder!

One of my greatest pleasures at home is watching the birds in the backyard. Inspired by Kim Kusiciel's bagel bird feeder idea (see her tip here), I came up with ice cream cone bird feeders. Be sure to have some ice cream in the freezer so after your kids make a treat for the birds they can have one themselves!

You’ll need:

  • ice cream cones
  • peanut butter
  • birdseed
  • twine, yarn or string

Here’s how you make them:

  1. At the bottom of the cone, poke a hole through the sides (I used a small screwdriver).
  2. Thread a piece of twine, yarn or string through the holes and tie, creating a hanger.
  3. Spread peanut butter on the rim and sides of what was the top (but now the bottom) of the cone.
  4. Dip the peanut butter in birdseed to coat.
  5. Hang it in a tree and enjoy watching the birds.
