Now these say crafts for children, but I think I am going to make some of these myself!  Seriously.  I know I definitely want to make that Pine Cone Bird Feeder and watch the birds come!  And some of these other things look cool too.  I don't have any children, so maybe I will have to borrow a neighbor kid to help me!
