Valentine's Bird Feeder Self Guided Craft


Create this all natural DIY gelatin heart-shaped bird feeder to share the love this Valentine's Day! 

Things needed for this project: (Makes 1 large or 2 medium/small feeders) 

- 200 grams of Birdseed
- 1 small packet of Gelatine
- Twine, raffia or wire for hanger (don’t use bright colored ribbon, it scares the birds away)
- heart-shaped mold (silicone, or cookie cutter) 
- 60 ml water

Bird Feeder ingredients

1. Dissolve a packet of gelatine in 60 ml of water, bring to simmer and stir until dissolved. Let cool slightly.

2. Add 200 grams of bird seed and mix very well until seeds are coated. 

3. Spoon the seeds into a mold, filling it half way up, and pressing down to make sure it is well packed.

4. Lay tied twine on top of the pressed seed, and fill up the rest of the way so twine is fully covered. 

5. Put in the freezer for a few hours so it can be easily removed from the mold.

6. Let it dry out for a few days, flipping it so it dries out completely on both sides and all the way through.
