DIY Peanut Butter Bird Feeder

by the West Elkton Library

Materials Needed:

  • Toilet Paper Roll
  • Peanut Butter
  • Spreading utensil
  • Wild bird seed
  • String/yarn
  • Scissors
  • Paper plate (or other surface that you won't mind getting dirty)


  1. Place toilet paper roll on paper plate. 
  2. Spread peanut butter thinly (but thick enough to cover the roll) onto the entire roll. 
  3. Pour a small to medium pile of bird seed on the paper plate.
  4. Roll the peanut-butter covered toilet paper roll in the bird seed until it is thoroughly coated in bird seed. 
  5. Run a piece of string or yard through the roll and tie it at the top. Use enough string to allow plenty of room to hang the feeder on a branch. 
  6. Place your feeder outside and clear of any potential ground predators.
  7. Watch to see if any birds enjoy the sweet treat!
