How To Make A Birdseed Wreath

Since I have a lot of birds and trees by my patio I thought a Bird Seed Wreath would make a nice decoration and treat for the birds.

After I made it, I have to admit I liked it so much I didn’t want the birds to have it!!  So I bought them a bird feeder and hung the wreath on my patio away from the birds. It’s been a year now and it’s still on my patio!

How To Make A Birdseed Wreath

8 cups birdseed
1 1/2 cup boiling water
6 of the 1/4 packets of Gelatin
1/2 cup corn syrup
8 tablespoons cold water
  • Combine the gelatin with the 8 tablespoons of cold water, stir until dissolved, then add to the boiling water. Mix well. Add in the birdseed and corn syrup. Mix thoroughly. Pour mixture into a bundt pan that has been greased with Pam or oil to prevent sticking, pat the top of the seeds to make sure it is packed in good. You can also line the bundt pan with foil. Place in the refrigerator overnight.
  • After it has set overnight turn the bundt pan upside down and “shake” it out. I had to go around the edges with a knife to loosen it up before it came out.
  • Tie a ribbon for hanging.

  19. I actually like to hang them in the trees for the birds to eat since they're easy to replace.
  20. Cool idea! Looks like a great craft project for kids too :))
  21. I love it! I'm going to make one for my Mom for Christmas...she loves feeding the birds in the backyard and it would look great hanging on the A-frame.
  22. I hung mine by my front door where the birds can't see it. I have a bird feeder hanging in a different area and that seems to be where they hang out. LOL Thanks for dropping by...I will visit your blog. :)
  23. This is a neat idea but how do you keep birds off of it? I get a lot of feathered friends on my porch, i'd be too afraid they would eat my wreath! Just hopping by from the "Blog Hop Til You Drop", I'm your newest follower =-)
