Suet Cups and Cones


Suet is beef fat. Suet mixtures are available at bird supply stores, or you can get plain suet from a butcher. The instructions for Suet Cups and Cones are from the Denver Audubon Society.



  1. For suet cups, hollow out orange halves. Fill the empty halves with the suet mixture.
  2. Poke a hole on each side of the orange half near the top. Work one end of the pipe cleaner through each hole, bending the ends to make handles with which to hang the cup.
  3. For suet cones, cover the pine cones with your choice of suet mixture or plain suet.
  4. Work the suet mixture into the scales of the pine cones.
  5. Hang the cones with yarn, string or wire.
