Supplies:

  • 1 bundt cake pan with multiple small cake cavities
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons corn syrup
  • 2 cups bird seed
  • pan spray
  • 8 inches of red ribbon per wreath
  • 1 chenille stick per wreath
  • butcher paper

Instructions:

  1. Spray your pan and set aside.

  2. Mix the flour, water, and corn syrup together. Add in the birdseed. Mix well with hands and add handfuls to each cavity of cake pan.

  3. Press firmly in place and allow to sit overnight.

  4. Lay out a sheet of butcher paper and turn your cake pan over so you are dumping out the contents.

  5. Make a ribbon for the wreath out of a red chenille stick by making a loop and bringing it back over and making the second loop.

  6. Tie a red ribbon around the wreath and add the red chenille bow.

  7. Tie it outside for the birds to enjoy.

Tip: I used the red ribbon and chenille stick because I thought it would attract the birds better. This would make a wonderful gift for an older friend who enjoys birdwatching or for someone who has everything. Just wrap it in clear wrap and pass along the smiles.

Thank you for this craft! I love watching the birds at our feeders, and I know they will love this. It should attract a lot of woodpeckers, which is always a treat. You got my vote!
