Backyard birding is a fun hobby, but if you’re looking to attract more birds to your backyard, try making a birdseed wreath. You can use your favorite bunt pan or ring pan- the more decorative, the better. You could use a shaped cake pan, but place a cup or glass in the center so you can hang your wreath later. Spray the mold or pan with nonstick cooking spray.
Then, in a large bowl stir together one package of plain gelatin, half a cup of warm water, three tablespoons of light corn syrup, or maple syrup, and ¾ cup of flour until it becomes a paste. Add 4 cups of birdseed and mix well. Press the mixture into your oiled bunt pan and wait 24 to 48 hours for the mold to dry completely. Use a length of fabric ribbon to hang your wreath outdoors and enjoy watching the birds! You’ll want to hang your birdseed wreath where it won’t get too wet to avoid mold.
