Do you want to help the little birds in your yard get ready for winter? Yes – then you need to try this fun little craft that my son and I did together by making a hanging bird seed wreath. I found some pretty good instructions over on instructables and thought it was a fun way to feed the little birdies in our yard. Most of the supplies you probably already have except for the bird seed. It only takes a few minutes to make, then you let it air dry for a couple of days and hang in a tree or your porch and watch the birds come flocking. Catch me after the jump for the how-to!
How To Make A Bird Seed Wreath
4 cups bird seed feed
3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup water
3 T. corn syrup
1 package of plain gelatin
bundt pan or other mold with a hole in the center
Step 1: In a large bowl put 1/2 warm water and gelatin mix together and let the gelatin dissolve.
Step 2: Whisk in the corn syrup and flour to create a paste.
Step 3: Add 4 cups of the bird seed and stir well.
Step 4: Spray the bundt pan well, then scoop the seed into the pan evenly as possible.
Step 5: Tap down the seed with a spoon well.
Now just hang it in a tree on a limb by tying a knot with ribbon. Isn’t it pretty? Simple too, and you can scratch that good deed off your list for the day :)
