Ornaments make great gifts for everyone – but what about our little feathered friends? Well, these bird seed ornaments have been all over Pinterest, so I thought we’d make some. We had the most fun and they turned out just beautifully!
You will need:
3-4 cups of birdseed
cookie cutters (or molds of some sort)
Boil 1 cup of water and dissolve gelatine in it. I used a 4 c. glass measuring cup so I could just dump the birdseed in once it was all dissolved up. Add the birdseed (we didn’t quite have enough, so I added some All Bran – birds like fiber, right?) Your mixture should be spoonable but not watery. Since we only had cookie cutters, I taped them down to a piece of wax paper so (hopefully) the seed wouldn’t ooze out the bottom. Hot tip – next time, I will put the wax paper on a cookie sheet before we filled ’em up. Whoops!
