Valentine Bird Seed Ornaments for Teachers Gifts

We decided to go with Bird Seed Ornaments for our Teacher Gifts this year.

You will need:

4 cups bird seed
3 tablespoons corn syrup
1 packet unflavored Gelatin
1/2 cup water
3/4 cup flour
Wax Paper
Cooking Spray
Mixing bowl and Spoons
Cookie Cuters

 Getting our supplies and children ready.

Pivia was my table helper, as I got the stuff from the kitchen she took it to the dinning room table.
 OK this photo is kinda not right, you techniqually need only one straw cut in half.

I was not sure tell we got started but Pivia had fun cutting in half.
 Mix all your ingrediants together, it will look like this.
 I set out three sheets of wax paper, one for each girl and one for the finished ornaments.

You only need to spray the inside of your cookie cutter once with the cooking spray.

Pack bird seed with a spoon until near the top of the cookie cutter.
 Alexis even joined in, last year she wanted no part of this when we made them.
 Make your hole with the straw.
They will need to dry for a day or so, I flip them over after the first 24 hours.

I kinda hold the sides of the cookie cutter while I transfer over to the wax paper and then realese a bit and the ornament will fall threw just fine.

Add some twine or ribbon when dry and give out to friends, family, teachers, or coaches.

         I made a cute Valentines Tag to go on the packaging.  Would you like to see how, CLICK HERE.
