Roll them in the birdseed.
Hang them outside on a tree branch. We like to hang ours on a hook right outside the slider to our backyard. It is a primo spot to spy on the birds while they feast.
We watched for about an hour for the birds to flock to our bird feeder. We were all ready to get a great picture but no birds showed up. In the meantime the kids wandered off to play and I fell asleep. Oh well, there's always tomorrow.

We made bird feeders today to hang in our backyard so we could watch the birds this summer. We made these a couple years ago and we saw lots of different birds coming to visit our bird feeder. They are easy to make. You just need some birdseed (we got some in the bulk section of our grocery store), creamy peanut butter, yarn (or something else to hang your bird feeder), and pine cones (here in the northwest they are everywhere, hopefully you can find some too).
Spread the pine cones with peanut butter.
