Bird Seed Wreaths

I saw this a while back and knew it was something I eventually would get around to trying. Such a cool idea and a great gift for a bird loving friend. And a fun project for the kids. A step above rolling pine cones covered in peanut butter in bird seed. Have I ever mentioned we have 3 birds? Oh, and lets not forget the dog that I have a love hate relationship with, good ol' Snickers!
I picked these up at the thrift store for  $1.50.

I used a glue stick to make a hole in the heart shaped one so I can attach a ribbon for hanging. How very ingenious of me!

Notice there is no heart shaped wreath. That's because it fell apart. And my kids thought I was a complete loser for making these, ha!

I don't know but the bird were having a heck of a time trying to get any seed. Even seems to be a bit of a problem for this guy but he's not giving up any time soon!

Awesome idea, Sue! I don't think those birds have a chance but that's one lucky squirrel! Fun!

Merry Christmas!

Hi There...I am new to blogging. I make these and sell them through local birding stores in my area. If you add a 1/2 cup of flour to your birdseed (I use safflower....it is a white seed that squirrels don't like) and 3 tablespoons of corn syrup to your gelatin mix, it will hold better. Have fun!!!
