Here are photos of the step by step process in making the gelatin wreath:
BIRD SEED WREATH RECIPE
1 pkg plain Knox gelatin
1/2 cup warm water
3 Tbsp light corn syrup
3/4 cup flour
4 cups bird seed
Bundt or ring pan
Spoon or whisk
Non-stick oil spray
Wide ribbon or fabric remnant
Hook or metal ring
Spray the mold with oil spray
In a large bowl, stir together the gelatin, warm water, corn syrup and flour until it becomes a paste.
Add the birdseed and mix well.
Press it firmly into the oiled pan….
Tie on the ribbon add the hook or ring and hang!
Enjoy watching the birds!
- 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.
