Way back in 2011 when this blog was brand new and just my little outlet while my husband was deployed I posted about making bird feeders with my boys. We recently did this again last week and I thought it was worth posting properly so that others could do this fun craft too!
What You Need:
2 Packets of Unflavored Gelatin
What You Do:
Bring 1/2 cup of water to a boil.
Remove from heat and stir in gelatin until dissolved.
Add 1.5 cups of birdseed.
Lay wax paper on a flat surface and position your cookie cutters on top.
Spoon birdseed mixture into the cookie cutters until halfway full, then lay a knotted piece of twine in the mixture and continue to fill.
Pat top until smooth and let sit until hardened-about 6 hours.
Too easy, right? With Spring finally beginning to arrive it’s the perfect afternoon craft!
Thanks for stopping by!
