Enjoy watching the birds!

Kirk’s tips:

  • I’ve learned so much in making these. Wait for 48 hours until they completely dry.
  • I doubled the recipe and added an extra packet of the gelatin to fill my bundt pan.
  • I originally tried to hang one with rope. Not good. The rope broke the wreath! Fabric ribbon works perfectly.
  • I attached a metal ring so I could hang it.

A Sweetheart variation:

Jeanne Sammons has a heart for her birds.  Use a small can to form the hole to hang ribbon, as shown
