How to Make an Ice Cream Cone Bird Feeder Craft
You will need:
- waffle cones
- piece of jute cord
- peanut butter
Carefully cut the top of the ice cream cone (the pointed end of the ice cream cone) to create an opening just large enough for a piece of twine to get through.
Coat the outside of the cone with a thin, even layer of peanut butter using craft sticks or a butter knife.
Pour the bird seed onto a paper plate or bowl.
Roll the cone into the bowl of bird seed.
Cut a piece of string to a desired length, tie a knot in the bottom half of the cord.
Slide the cone down, wide side down, over the cord and let the cone rest on the knot.
Tie a loop at the top for hanging.
Hang your feeder from a tree branch or window sill and wait for the feathered guests to arrive.
