My goal this month (well, all the cold months) is to bring the outside inside.  (Because I hate being cold.  HATE it.)

SO, when I found some birdseed on SUPER discount, I got an idea.


I used a little trash (toilet paper holders), a little yard trash (pinecones) and the rest of my peanut butter.


Paint peanut butter on to the pinecones.

Roll the pine cones in the birdseed.

Hang outside.

Enjoy the birds

Here’s our fun:

Paint the pine cone

Pour the birdseed on a plate

Roll in peanut butter

Hang outside

**Note: We also painted the toilet paper rolls.  Although they aren’t as Earth-friendly, they stick on the trees pretty easily:

Also check out the bird ornaments.  They would be really cool hanging with the pine cones outside.

PS – I’m sure it is the bunny and not the birdseed that attracted this hawk, but I still thought he was a cool visitor this week:
