Another craft y’all! I’ve actually seen these type of bird seed ornaments before but had never made them so when I was sent the supplies to create some food for the birds, me and Truett went to town! He had a blast helping me and loved seeing them hang from the tree. He sits by the window and watches for birds to come eat on it. Also check out my other easy DIY bird feeder to lure in the Orioles.
These are super easy to make! Supplies you’ll need include:
- 3/4 cup flour (I used Great Value)
- 3 Tablespoons Light Corn syrup (Great Value again)
- 1/2 cup water
- 4 cups Pennington Wild Bird Food
- Halloween Cookie Cutters
- 1 Straw cut up into 5 or 6 pieces
Lay out a sheet of wax paper down to work on. You can either roll out the birdseed “dough” or fill your cookie cutters. We spooned ours in. It’s also highly recommended that you spray your cutters with nonstick spray so they slide right out after they have had time to dry.
Mix the first 4 ingredients together and fill your cookie cutters.
After you’ve filled your cookie cutter, stick a piece of the straw where you’d like your hole for it to hang. Let them dry for 4-6 hours (we did overnight), and push them out of cutters.
Thread your birdseed ornament with the yarn and hang from a tree! That’s it y’all!
