Summer Bucket List.
Everything I found seemed to be the same basic recipe including gelatin and bird seed. Most ideas used cookie cutters.
So here is what we did!
1 pack of plain gelatin
1/4 cup water
1 cup of bird seed
Empty egg carton
I always have egg cartons and tend to always resort to them for crafts so I figured they would make a good mold also! I decided against the cookie cutters mainly because I only have Christmas ones and I wanted something different.
We combined the water and gelatin and heated it up until the gelatin disolved. We removed it from the heat and let it cool for a few minutes then added the birdseed. We mixed it up really well and filled about 6 egg cups halfway with the mixture.
I tied a knot in the end of a line of twine and pushed it into the half filled cups and filled it the rest of the way. I did 2 with only one egg cup and then I figured I can make a bigger feeder if I tie a few knots in the twine spaced so that each knot can go into 1 egg cup. I ended up with 2 bird feeders with 3 eggs and 2 with only 1 egg.
All in all I think they turned out pretty well and I am glad I didn't use the cookie cutters.
