What you'll need:
Toilet Paper Rolls
Sturdy sticks, 2 per roll, 6-8 inches long
String or ribbon
A Hole Punch
Punch 2 holes in one side of the toilet paper roll, aligning them evenly across from each other. This will be used to tie the string for hanging.
2. Punch 4 holes into the opposite end of the toilet paper roll, align them evenly. This is for the sticks that the birds will perch on. Try to put one set a little higher than the other so the sticks can be pushed through without issue.
3. Insert the 2 sticks into each hole, going in one side and out the other in the corresponding hole. Wiggle and push in sticks gently, you don't want the holes to rip or get too loose. The sticks might fall out!
4. Center each stick, they should be crossing each other like an intersection and should stick out enough for a bird to perch on.
5. Next, holding the lower part of the feeder below the sticks, you'll spread a light layer of peanut butter on the upper part of the toilet paper roll and cover in bird seed. We used the back of a spoon to slather on the peanut butter and pressed in the bird seed all around it. Careful not to cover your holes at the top, you'll clog them with peanut butter and you need them for the next step!
