heart shaped bird feeder

by Alicia
(North Carolina)


3 cups bird seed
2 four oz. unflavered gelaton packs
cookie cutters (im using a heart shaped one)
string or twine

Step 1.Sprinkle two packages of gelatin over 1/2 cup cold water. Let it sit a couple of minutes until gelatin has absorbed the water. Heat 1 3/4 cups water in a pan, then add in the gelatin mixture. Stir until dissolved. Stir in 3 cups birdseed.

Allow mixture to cool until gelatin is thick and coats all the birdseed.

Step 2.Wrap a piece of foil along the bottom and up the sides of a cookie cutter. Spray foil and cookie cutter with cooking spray. We used a 5 inch heart cookie cutter but any will work This mixture was enough to make three bird feeders.

Step 3.Pack birdseed mixture inside cookie cutter. Place a piece of straw in birdseed to leave a hole for hanging the bird feeder.

Allow mixture to harden and then remove from cookie cutter. We placed ours in the freezer for about and hour to speed things up.

Step 4.Add a piece of twine for hanging.

Thanks Alicia! Look forward to trying this for the Christmas season.
