Ingredients

Feed 'Em With Style

 

  • 4 cups birdseed
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup hot water
  • 1 package unflavored gelatin
  • 3 Tablespoons light corn syrup

How Many Ornaments Does A Batch Make?

  • The number of ornaments a batch will make is decided on the size of the cookie cutter or mold that is used.
  • If making a large number of ornaments for any special occasion I’d suggest making one batch and testing the number of ornaments you will get out of the recipe.

Molds & Cutters

  • Use metal cookie cutters to press the mixture into to harden.
  • Use flex molds to pack and shape the mixture.
  • Be sure to use non-stick cooking spray and spray your desired shaping tool.

Here is How I Made Mine

Tag Sayings Poem & Ideas For Weddings


Wedding Idea #1

Use a bird-shaped cookie cutter to mold ornaments.  Add a tag that says from the love birds.


Wedding Idea #2

Use a heart cookie cutter to mold ornaments.

Add a tag that says:
Once in a while
Right in the middle of ordinary life,
Love gives us a fairy tale.


Christmas Idea

Use any cookie cutter and add the following poem:

So remember while December
Brings the only Christmas Day,
In the year let there be Christmas
In the things you do and say;
Wouldn’t life be worth the living
Wouldn’t dreams be coming true
If we kept the Christmas spirit
All the whole year through?


For Friendship

Use a heart cookie cutter and the following poem:

Friendship is a gift that is fair in all things.
It roots from one’s heart and involves memories;
That stay not for a while but for a lifetime.


Having fun creating your own birdseed ornaments.
