  • To create this craft, you will need the following:

    – 3/4 cup of bird seed (I bought a $5 bag at Target.)
    – 1 packet of Knox Unflavored Gelatin
    – 1/4 cup of water
    – cookie cutters (large & medium size)
    – twine or string
    – a straw
    – wax paper
    – large bowl
    – saucepan
    – spoon


    1. In a saucepan, bring water to a boil and add the gelatin. Over medium heat, stir the gelatin until completely dissolved, about five minutes. Let cool.
    2. In a large bowl, combine birdseed and gelatin mix. Let your kids mix the birdseed mixture with hands or spoon.

  • 3. Lay a piece of wax paper on the table and place your cookie cutters on top. Add the birdseed mixture to the cookie cutters by pressing down so they are fully packed. Once done, create a hole by pressing the straw into the mixture and removing. This will help attach the string to hang the birdseed ornaments.
    4. Place all the birdseed ornaments in the freezer for about 20 minutes. Then remove them and let them dry at room temperature for a complete day before adding the twine or hanging them outside.

    Happy spring crafting!
