A birdseed wreath can be made.

A birdseed wreath is an inexpensive craft you can make with your kids or give as a gift to a bird lover in your life.Bird seed, corn syrup, and flour are some of the ingredients used to create a wreath.Adding variety to your wreath is possible by making it with peanut butter, water, or festively shaped molds.Birds frequent a place where you hang your wreath. Step 1: In non-stick spray, coat your pan or mold. Pass the spray over the mold until all the surfaces are covered.Grease the bottom of your mold with shortening.All surfaces should have a light layer of shortening.Failure to do this could cause your wreath to stick in the mold.During removal, stuck wreath break or crack. Step 2: The water should be hot in a small pot or kettle. Warm water and dish soap can be used to clean the pot or kettle.It's important to rinse it to avoid making birds sick.Over high heat, add a half cup of water to the pot.Turn off the heat when it is not boiling.You can heat the water in a microwave safe bowl or dish.The water should be heated until it is boiling. Step 3: The wreath ingredients should be put in a bowl. The bowl should include hot water, corn syrup, and flour.Stir it with a utensil, like a wooden spoon, until it becomes paste-like consistency.Continue to stir until the seed is evenly distributed.It should be possible to make a wreath that is more resilient.Add more gelatin if you have issues with wreath cracking or breaking. Step 4: The mixture should be transferred to the mold. The seed mixture is likely to be clumpy at this point.Use your utensil to push the mixture into the pan.Press the mixture firmly into the pan.The mixture should be flat. Step 5: Wait at least 24 hours for the mixture to dry. It can take as little as eight hours for some gelatins to dry.The mixture can be tested by pressing its surface gently.It needs more time to dry if it is soft.When the mixture will be fully hardened, you should wait 48 hours.If you place it in a refrigerator it will be ready in as little as two hours.Remove the mixture from the fridge when it is hard to touch. Step 6: The wreath needs to be removed from its mold. The mold can be flexed by bending it.To wedge between the mold and the wreath, use a thin tool, like a knife or spatula.Remove the wreath by using the tool to loosen the mold. Step 7: You can add a hanger to the wreath. Tie a length of ribbon around your wreath.You can hang your wreath on hooks, nails, posts, and so on by fastening the ends of the ribbon with a simple knot.A heavy rope may be too rough on your wreath and cause it to break.Ribbon and twine are lightweight. Step 8: Hang your wreath and enjoy. If you frequently see birds in your yard, position your wreath around bird feeders or near a bird bath.You can hang your wreath from the tree branches.You can enjoy your birdseed wreath with a pair of birdwatching binoculars. Step 9: A wreath made of birdseed and ice. Spread a thick layer of birdseed on the bottom of a mold.The mold should be filled with clean water.The mold should be put in the freezer.Take the ice wreath out and hang it.Birdspeck away at the ice to get seeds. Step 10: Try different molds. To make a shaped mold that is difficult to hang, use a pencil to push a small hole in the wreath mixture while it's still soft.Attach ribbon to the hole for hanging.To prevent mold shapes from falling apart too soon, you may want to add more gelatin to them.Holiday molds can be used to make festive decorations. Step 11: You can make a wreath with peanut butter. Suet is used in cooking.Most grocery stores and general retailers have it.You will need 3 blocks of suet, a half cup of peanut butter, and 9 cups of birdseed for this wreath.To make a peanut butter wreath, liquefy three blocks of suet over low heat in a large pot.The suet should be heated with a wooden spoon.Bring the suet to a boil.Add peanut butter to the suet when it's melted.When the mixture is consistent throughout and fully melted, remove it from the heat.Put the birdseed in your spoon.A mold that has been coated with non-stick spray can be used to transfer the suet.The mixture should be put in a refrigerator.
