Crafting With Sandra Lee

While browsing through the Sandra Lee Christmas magazine, I happened upon an idea that I thought would make a great gift, not just at Christmas but all year round. So tonight I ventured into the kitchen with supplies in hand to make these adorable bird seed wreaths.

Bird Seed Wreaths

3 envelopes of plain gelatin
6 Tblsp. cold water
1 c. boiling water
6 c. birdseed
Bundt pan or mini Bundt pans

In a large bowl combine gelatin and cold water. Allow to sit for 1 minute.

Pour in boiling water. Stir until completely dissolved.

Slowly stir in birdseed.

Spoon birdseed mixture into a well greased Bundt cake pan or mini Bundt cake pan. Press down firmly to pack the birdseed in place. Place pan in refrigerator and allow to set for several hours.

Once wreath(s) have set completely, remove from pan and tie a ribbon around the center of the wreath for hanging.
