Bird Seed Ornaments

Make Your Own Bird Seed Ornaments

1/2 cup water
3 teaspoons unflavored gelatin
3 Tablespoons corn syrup
3/4 cup flour
4 cups bird seed

Heat water, gelatin and corn syrup together over low heat. No need to boil.  Mix flour and seed together and then slowly add gelatin mixture. While cooling, put out parchment paper on the counter, and choose your favorite cookie cutters. Spray the inside of the cookie cutter with Pam.  Fill the cutter with mixture pressing tightly. Use a spray or skewer to poke a hole through (for hanging). I did it the next day but you can do it sooner.  Then remove from cutter and let dry for several hours. Once dry, you can attach ribbon or string and hang for the birds. These got eaten very quickly in my yard.  I  made these and got the recipe at at an event at the local library.
