{Pinterest Inspired}: Bird Feeders

I got the idea and instructions for these here via Pinterest. I doubted the process.  I guess that I forgot how sticky gelatine really is.  This worked great.  We doubled the recipe and made 4 big feeders.
Thursday was National Bird Day.  At least it was according to Holiday Insights.  So - last night, Taft and I worked on a few gifts for the birds in our neighborhood.  We even had all the ingredients already.

Here is what you need:
  • 3/4 cup birdseed
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 small envelope of Knox gelatin
  • twine or string
  • cookie cutters, molds or mason jar lids
  • wax paper
You need to put the water and the gelatin in a sauce pan.  Heat to a simmer and stir constantly until the gelatin is dissolved.  Remove from and the heat and let it cool a minute.  Then add in the birdseed.  It says to add a little extra seed if there is liquid left in the bottom of the pan.
Lay your cookie cutters (or anything that you are using as a mold) onto the waxed paper.  Fill them half full of birdseed mixture.  Add your twine or ribbon.  Then finish filling the mold with the birdseed.  (This makes the ribbon or twine sandwiched into the mold.)  Press down on the birdseed until the mold is full and it is packed tight.
Let them dry overnight and removed from the molds.  Then we hung on trees in the front yard.
