EASY Christmas Tree Repurposed Bird Feeder
For this Christmas, make these ornaments to add something new to your tree, attract birds by feeding them with these delicious ornaments of seeds and fruits. In this video you will learn how to make:
▶️ Birdseed Ornaments
Grease muffin tins. Dissolve gelatin in hot water. Add corn syrup and flour. Mix thoroughly. Add birdseed and mix again. Fill each individual muffin cup halfway with birdseed mixture, then form a loop out of a piece of twine or ribbon and press into each muffin cup, fill the muffin cups the rest of the way with the birdseed mixture, pressing down firmly. Let set several hours or overnight.
▶️ Pinecone Ornaments
Apply peanut butter to pinecone then roll in birdseed. Form a loop out of jute twine and hot glue to the top of the pinecone.
▶️ Cranberry/Popcorn/Orange Garland
You can do whatever pattern you like! For mine, I started 5 cranberries, then one orange, then 5 pieces of popcorn, and repeated until I had a nice, long garland.
▶️ Fresh Apple/Orange Garland
Cut apples and oranges into ¼ inch thick slices. Line a baking sheet with parchment. Spread peanut butter to half of the apple slices, front and back, dip in birdseed and lay on paper. When all the apples are finished, grab a piece of jute twine and a large needle (I used a plastic darning needle which can be found in the knitting section of the craft store). String the apples and oranges, alternating as you go. I like to keep this type of garland in about 4’ or fewer sections because they’re much easier to manage.
