During this time of year, we enjoy watching the various birds that visit our backyard. We have been spending hours out back with a cocktail listening to music and watching spring blossom. We have lots of critters paying us a visit, some cuter than others that’s for sure. The frogs and lizards run around the pool deck. And the butterflies and dragon flies zip around. Our most frequent friends are a variety of colorful birds that stop in looking for food. I was looking to make a DIY project that would not only look cute but would give our friends a treat. I have used this recipe for bird feeds in the past by using cookie cutters but this time I was short on time, so I decided to make one large wreath. It is very easy and makes a unique gift for friends and family as well. The secret is to let the mold sit out over night to dry. I have made them in the past and couldn’t figure out why they fell apart. This time I let the mold sit to dry for an entire day and it came out perfect.

Supplies to make the wreath.

Here are the supplies you will need to make this project at home:

  1. Bundt pan
  2. Ribbon
  3. Cooking spray
  4. 1/2 cup warm water
  5. 1 Envelope of gelatin, I prefer Knox brand
  6. 3/4 Cup flour
  7. 3 Tablespoons of corn syrup
  8. 4 Cups of bird seed
  9. Cranberries, I prefer fresh but this time I did use dried
Wreath is ready to dry overnight.

Step 1: Spray the bundt pan with cooking spray.

Step 2: Drop a handful of cranberries into the bottom of the bundt pan.

Step 3: Mix the water and gelatin until dissolved.

Step 4: Mix in flour and corn syrup.

Step 5: Mix in bird seed.

Step 6: Dump the bird seed mixture into the bundt pan. Press down with your hands to smush the mixture evenly in the pan.

Step 7: Leave the pan in a cool area to dry overnight.

Step 8: The wreath will pop right out of the pan.

Step 9: Tie a ribbon around the wreath.

Step 10: Hang the wreath on a sturdy branch somewhere in your yard where you can enjoy watching all of the pretty birds snack.

Wreath is finished and ready to enjoy.
