Here, There, and Everywhere

Okay, yes to being here and there, but maybe not quite everywhere.  ;)  My friend Chantilly is having a crazy giveaway on her blog today, and one of my plush snails is hanging out in one of those giveaways!  If you're interested, you can enter here

I recently had the privilege of doing a little DIY guest post over on my friend Moorea's blog.  If you get a chance, you should check out her other guests.  I've really been enjoying them all!

I thought I would share my super simple DIY over here for all of you as well.  :)  I would like to add, since we've made these, we've been enjoying watching the little birdies in our front yard.  The little ones get a big kick out of it!

fabric and lace, twig spheres (can be purchased at most craft stores), peanut butter, birdseed

Step 1:
Thread the fabric through the sphere.  We used scissors to help push it through. 

Step 2:
Cover the sphere with peanut butter, being careful not to spread onto the fabric.

Step 3:
Roll, roll, roll in bird seed!

Step 4:
Hang your bird feeders and enjoy!

(Did you notice my tiny little helper hands in the photos?  So cute!)
Have a great day, everyone!  I have a REALLY awesome guest post in the works for my blog this week, and I'm so excited to share soon!  xoxo Katie


  1. love it! thank you for sharing ♥

  2. Katie this is SO cute!! I have been wanting to get birdseed to hang out for the birds that pass through our backyard, but as we have several kitty's out back, that would not be so terribly nice for the birdies. :(

    But I love this tutorial all the same!!

    Have a wonderful day friend!!

  3. Awesome - I did this with pine cones a few weeks back since we had a bunch in our backyard.

  4. what a great idea! and they are pretty too with the ribbon :)

  5. these are so simple and SO cute!!! i love it!!

  6. cutecutecute! you can also use vegetable shortening instead of peanut butter (for kidlets with allergies.)

  7. very cute! Good craft for a little one to do in the summer- plus he could keep it up all summer and refill it everyday :) clever!

  8. Awesome idea for a craft night. ;)

  9. I would LOVE to do this but I fear my dog will either try to eat them or eat the birds that eat them! :( Great idea though!

  10. so pretty! not sure how to keep the furry seed thieves away, but i have soooo many pretty birds in the yard, i think they deserve a snack ;)

  11. What a great, modern way to reinvent the bird-feeder! I was expecting peanut butter on a pine cone. I should have known better!

  12. SUPER COOL! i want to try this out!!

  13. Thanks so much for this, my little one will love making these, but will no doubt make a ton more mess than you guys did ;)

  14. What a great project. Thanks for sharing!

  15. This is the cutes DIY ever! Im so glad I found your blog!

  16. pine cones work great - and they're free!

  17. Hi, I just wanted to drop by and let you know that I have just finished a post on my blog about things I want to learn this year inlcuding how to make treats for the birds. I used one of your photos and have included a link to your page but if you want me to remove the photo then just let me know and I'll take it straight down.
