Last week my bloggy friend Theresa posted about a fun project she did with her girls. They made Bird Seed Cake Ornaments to hang in their yard. This looked like such a fun idea that I planned on following her tutorial, and making some of our own this past weekend.
I made sure I had all the materials, and hadn't even mentioned the project to Autumn yet, when she came to me with some perfect pinecones she found in the yard, and announced that she wanted to make Pinecone Bird Feeders. I recall making these as a child. It was a lot of messy fun, but the best part was watching to see if a bird was actually going to eat from them.
So I decided we would start off with the pincone feeders, and then later on in the week I plan to follow Theresa's DIY and also make the Bird Seed Cake Ornaments. A bird can never have too much food :)
Below I've posted pictures and directions for the Pinecone Bird Feeders, and if you'd like to check out Theresa's DIY for the Bird Seed Cake Ornaments hop on over to her blog ~ Theresa's Mixed Nuts Bird Seed Cake Ornament Tutorial.
Whichever DIY you choose, it's sure to make the birds happy :)
Do you have any fun projects planned for this week?
