DIY Valentine Bird Feeder Hearts
3/4 cup + 2 Tbsp Bird Seed
1 envelope unflavored gelatin
1/3 cup water
Heart Cookie Cutter
Drinking straw, cut into a length of 1″
Cord or string for hanging
How to Make Bird Seed Hearts:
Boil the water. Add in the gelatin and stir until dissolved. Mix in the bird seed.
Lay the cookie cutter on a baking sheet. (I covered it with wax paper, but I don’t think it’s necessary.) Start filling with the bird seed mixture. Place the drinking straw where you would like the hanger to go and pack seed mixture around it. Finish filling cookie cutter and press down with your fingers.
Set outside or in the refrigerator to cool. Once it is set, remove from cookie cutter. Remove straw. Allow to dry overnight.
Thread cord through hole to hang from tree. To hang ours, I used a thin piece of flannel cut from old pajamas.
