Make an Edible Bird Feeder for Your Backyard Birds

Make an Edible Bird Feeder for your Birds

 

If you are a bird lover then this will be an easy and fun way to feed your backyard birds. It is also a fun activity to do with your kids or to make to give as gifts.

  • 3/4 a cup of flour
  • 1/2 a cup of water
  • 1 envelope unflavored gelatin (2.5 teaspoons)
  • 3 tbsp corn syrup
  • 4 cups birdseed (makes approximately 12 bird feeders)

1. Spray a spoon with cooking spray and mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl.

2. Spray the inside of your cookie cutter with cooking spray, and place it on a parchment lined baking sheet.

3. Fill your cookie cutter with the birdseed mixture and be sure to pack it down.

4. After the birdseed has been packed down, use something like s shewer or narrow stick to make a hole.

5. Then, holding down the birdseed, pull off the cookie cutter. You may have to respray the cookie cutter.

6. Let them air dry over night and then they are ready to hang. Use narrow ribbon or hemp ribbon to string the bird feeder. You can use any shaped cookie cutter or make it for a holiday theme. Egg shaped cookie cutters will be fun for Easter.

This is a great idea and a very special way to decorate a tree for the wildlife.

It is snowing in Maryland and the birds will be looking for food tomorrow.

Feed the birds! Those would make great gifts for clients in winter too! As a bird lover, that recipe sounds delicious!

Hi Patricia Feager, MBA, GRI, Cert Negotiations Expert, Military Relo Prof 

Love the new profile picture! Many of us are birdlovers and I feel bad for the birds in the winter and also our drought.

Kristen, love this idea.  Definitely a fun project for kids and also less expensive than buying the commercial bird seed shapes.

Hi Roger D. Mucci 

I was just looking at the daily rolls and saw something about Hamburgers. Must go and find that as I wasn't logged in and aftere I did, it took me home instead. Thanks for stopping.

Hi Joni Staples 

I am so glad you stopped by. I would have never thought of it either until a friend sent me the recipe. I am going to make Easter edibles.

Hi Melanie Cameron 

I think this would be fun for kids. I used to be a Brownie leader and this would be a great activity to earn a wildlife badge.

Hi Jan,

What a great idea of giving out "Drop By Gifts" and this would be perfect and so easy for clients to hang.
