Bird Seed Ornament
How we did it:
- bird seed (3/4 cup)
- warm water (1/4 cup)
- wax paper
- gelatin (one packet)
- cookie cutters
Gather your materials.
Mix a packet of gelatin with Â¼ cup of warm water in a bowl. Stir it until the gelatin powder is dissolved. Allow it to cool and stir in the birdseed until it is all mixed together.
Cut your straws to be about 1â�� in length. Only one cut piece of straw is needed for each ornament.
Cover your work surface with wax paper. Place your cookie cutters down and begin filling them with the bird seed mixture. As you fill the cookie cutter, hold a piece of straw at the top of the ornament. Fill the seed mixture around, but not inside, the straw. Let the ornaments dry overnight.
Gently push the ornaments from the cookie cutters and thread the hole with ribbon. Go outside to find a tree and hang up your new bird seed ornament!
