Pine Cone Bird Feeder
You will need:
1/2 Cup Vegetable shortening or lard
2 1/2 Cups of Corn meal or Oats
Food mixture: Mix 2 1/2 cups cornmeal or oats with the 1/2 cup Vegetable shortening or lard. If you have any of these you could also add them: chopped nuts or seeds like sunflowers or others.
Cover your pinecone with the food mixture and then roll it in the birdseed. You will need to tie a few feet of string to the pine cone, then you are ready to hang it outside.
