Make: A Bird Feeder Wreath

As winter starts to fade into spring (in most areas), this simple project would be fun for the kids, and a good way to get birds flocking into your yard…..or away from your yard depending on where you hang this – ha!

To make your own bird feeder wreath you’ll need:


  • 4 cups of bird seed mix
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons corn syrup
  • 1 package of plain gelatin
  • greased bundt pan or other mold with hole in the center

DIY Bird Feeder Wreath Instructions:

  1. Combine water and gelatin

    In a large bowl put 1/2 warm water and gelatin mix together and let the gelatin dissolve.

  2. Add corn syrup and flour

    Create a paste by mixing in the corn syrup and flour to the gelatin and water.

  3. Stir in the bird seed

    Gently stir in your bird seed.

  4. Pack into a mold

    As evenly as possible, spread the mixture into the greased bundt pan. Pat it down tightly.

  5. Let sit

    Let sit for 24 hours.

  6. Take out of mold and dry

    Gently turn pan over and let ring of seed fall out. Let sit on a plate/towel/paper towel for another 24-48 hours.

  7. String with a ribbon and hang for the birds!

    Get a long piece of ribbon wide enough to be able to support your ring. Thread through a hole, and tie around a tree branch, or wherever you would like to hang it.

Let the birdies enjoy!
