Cookie Cutter Bird Feeders

Cookie Cutter Bird Feeders

3/4 c. small birdseed
1 packet of unflavored gelatin
1/4 c. water
Twine
Christmas cookie cutters
Parchment paper
Strong plastic drinking straw

Bring water to a boil over medium heat. Add in packet of unflavored gelatin. Stir until gelatin is dissolved (about 1-2 minutes). Take gelatin off heat and let set for a couple of minutes. Stir in bird seed. Place cookie cutters on a piece of parchment paper. Scoop the bird seed into cookie cutters, and using another piece of parchment paper, press the birdseed down. Stick a straw in the top of each filled cookie cutter to create a small hole. Set cookie cutters in the freezer for 20 minutes. Remove cookie cutters from the freezer, and let them sit in room temperature for approximately 10 minutes. Carefully push the bird seed feeders out of the cookie cutters. Thread a piece of twine through the hole at the top of the bird seed feeder and tie it into a loop. Wrap your homemade bird feeders up to give as a gift, or hang one on a tree and enjoy!
