Craft: Toilet Roll Bird Feeder

This toilet paper roll bird feeder is so simple to pull together.

Make some, hang them in a nearby tree and watch the birds gather.



  • toilet paper roll
  • nut butter
  • bird seed
  • string/yard



Step 1: Slather some nut butter all over the outside of the toilet paper roll.

Step 2: Pour about a cup of birdseed onto a plate and roll the nut butter covered toilet roll in the bird seed. Roll until completely covered.

Step 3: Thread about a foot of string through the tube and tie together to make a loop. This is how you will hang the bird feeder.

Step 4: Hang your feeder in your favorite tree and wait for some hungry visitors!
