I love all animals...dogs, cats, horses, donkeys, insects, flying things, wild animals and more! During this last year of much more time at home, my husband, Jerry and I have spent a lot of time watching the birds. My old friend Diana Makes, knowing I love bird-watching, sent me a recipe that sounded like a winner for our feathered friends.
BIRD FEEDER WREATH
This wreath was very easy to make and the birds loved it! They devoured the whole thing in just under 3 days! Here's how to put it together...
4 cups of bird seed. I used the seed with fruit and nuts.
About 1 cup of fresh cranberries or enough to cover bottom of Bundt pan.
2 packets unflavored gelatin
1/2 cup warm water
1/3 cup cornstarch
3 Tbsp. light corn syrup
Thick ribbon for hanging the wreath
Nonstick cooking spray
Spray Bundt pan with cooking spray. Place the cranberries in bottom of pan. Measure out the seed. In a medium sized sauce pan on medium heat, whisk together the packets of unflavored gelatin and warm water. Whisk until dissolved. Add in the corn starch and light corn syrup. Whisk until there are no lumps left.
The mixture starts to form a thick paste very quickly. The paste should be smooth and thick. Once the paste is formed, remove the pan from the heat and stir in the 4 cups of bird seed. Add the combined mixture to the Bundt pan.
