DIY Bird Treats

A little birdie told me..DIY

Last week you saw the super adorable, super easy DIY heart curtain for Valentine’s day. This week I wanted to show you a sweet little treat for our feathered friends.

These cute heart shaped DIY bird treats are so cute and will add a little something to your front yard. I found the idea here and just happened to have everything I needed (how convenient).

What you need is:

  • Wild bird seed (1 cup will do)
  • 1 packet of unflavored gelatin
  • Hot water
  • Bowl
  • Twine
  • A silicone mold (I of course used a heart mold I found at the dollar store)

This is super easy, and perfect to do with the kiddos. I did this solo because the kids weren’t around.

All you do is dissolve the gelatin according to the directions on the package, add the bird seed and stir until all of the seeds are coated.

Next, simply spoon the mixture into your silicone mold. Fill half way and stick your twine in (I made a loop and put a knot in it), then fill the rest up. Make sure you really pack it in there. Put it in the freezer to harden for about an hour. Gently remove the bird seed treats from the mold and hang in your favorite tree!
