Bird Seed Wreath

Spring isn’t quite here but I am certainly ready for it!  I have faith that only a couple of more weeks and Spring will be here to stay.  I can’t wait to see my first daffodil blooming!   Making a birdseed wreath is a fun, classic way to welcome in Spring.   Enlist your kids to help with this super simple recipe. These would make great hostess or housewarming gifts. To pretty them up, you could use the bundt pans with fancier designs or add a fancier ribbon. Either way, the birds will love you!

Brid Seed Wreath


4 cups of wild bird seed

1/2 cup of warm water

1 envelope of Knox gelatin

3/4 a cup of flour

bundt pan

nonstick spray

3 Tblsp. light corn syrup


wooden spoon

canvas drop cloth

1.   Spray your bundt pan with nonstick spray.

2.   Mix your Knox gelatin with 1/2 cup of warm water, whisk until mixed.   Then whisk in the flour and corn syrup.


3.   Add your bird seed and stir coating the seed well with a wooden spoon.   Then pour it into your greased bundt pan.



4.   Next press it tightly with the back of a wooden spoon into the bundt pan. Use wet hands to press it more if you need to.   Let it dry overnight.



5.   Once completely hardened overnight it will come right out of your pan.

6.   I used some drop cloth fabric strips ripping it to tie a ribbon around it and add a bow.   Hang it in an area that won’t be exposed to the rain.
