If your kids our like ours, they love craft projects. They always doing craft projects. So that means that they are always looking for new things to do. So when Wal-Mart asked if we wanted to do these wild bird seed Halloween ornaments, we jumped at the chance.
Here is how to make these very simple Wild Bird Seed Halloween Ornaments:
You will need the following items:
- a large mixing bowl
- a measuring cup
- a couple of spoons
- 3/4 cup all purpose flour
- 3 TBLS light corn syrup
- 1/2 cup water
- cookie cutters
- wax paper
- 4 cups Pennington Wild Bird Food bird seed
- yarn or twine
Mix the ingredients in a large bowl until well blended. Lay out a sheet of wax paper. Put the cookie cutters on the wax paper. Spoon the mixture into the cookie cutters. Remove the cookie cutters and make a small hole in the middle of each “cookie” ornament for your twine or yarn. (a straw works well) Let them dry 4 to 6 hours, or overnight. Turn them over every couple hours so the can dry on both sides. Cut the yarn or twine into 12″-24″ lengths. Thread through the hole in the ornaments. Hang the ornaments in the trees and shrubs for the birds to enjoy!
