Toilet Paper Roll Bird Feeder

Hey Craftaholics Anonymous® readers! Its Jessi here from Practically Functional. I love crafting with recycled items, and today’s project is one of my favorites: I turned a toilet paper roll into a bird feeder! They’re easy to make, and they’re a great craft for the kids to help with!

Clean off any extra bits of paper from your toilet paper rolls, then cover them in a thin layer of peanut butter.

    I love simple and quick. Do the birds mangle the paper roll or eat it? I’d like to see pics of the feeder after the birds have snacked.
