Bird Seed Ornaments

Why shouldn't birds celebrate Christmas too? With a few supplies you may already have laying around the house, you can make beautiful, yet functional holiday ornaments to hang on the trees outdoors.


This is a fun and simple craft that the whole family can enjoy.

Grab some of this:


And a jar of this: (I used crunchy!)


A bunch of these:


And some willing volunteers to help with the messy parts:

Attach a generous length of floral wire to the top of each pine cone. This is how you will hang the birdseed ornaments.

Here is the messy part: Spread peanut butter over the pine cone then roll it in a bowl full of birdseed. My two year old daughter Olivia loved doing this part!


Set the seeded pine cones on a plate and place cranberries in any crevices or large gaps in the pine cone.




Attach the pine cone to a tree or hang from your eaves to attract birds. They will surely love this attractive treat!

  4. This is such a neat ideal. I have pine tress surrounding my house and this would be perfect to get the little birdies to stop by!
