Brilliant birdseed ornaments
The whole family can look out for garden birds and have fun at the same time by making your own decorative bird feeders. They’re easy to make. You just need about 500g birdseed, 100g flour, 3 tablespoons of corn syrup, 2 teaspoons of unflavoured gelatin, 100ml water.
Make a paste out of the flour, water, gelatin and corn syrup and stir in the birdseed. You can make shapes out of the mixture using cookie cutters coated with a bit of oil. Make a hole in each shape and leave to harden overnight. Hang the ornaments by putting string through the holes – et voila!.
