Make your own bird seed wreath with these simple directions and inexpensive supplies.


  • 1 pound bag, Bird Seed
  • 4 packets, Knox Unflavored Gelatin
  • 2 cups, Water
  • Non-stick Cooking Spray
  • Ribbon
  • Wreath Mold


  1. On your stove top or in a microwave safe bowl, bring 2 cups of water to boil.
  2. Stir in the gelatin packets until dissolved. This equals out to about 8 tablespoons.
  3. Stir in 3 cups of bird seed into the mixture. Add an additional cup little by little until the mixture is a rough paste. You don’t want it to be too thin, and you don’t want it to be too chunky.
  4. Spray your mold with non-stick cooking spray.
  5. Pour the mixture into the mold and press it firmly. NOTE if you are using a muffin tin, take a pencil and poke a hole in each cup before moving onto the next step.
  6. Place the mold in your refrigerator for 2 hours.
  7. You will now notice your wreath is jelled and firmed. Try bending the pan carefully to loosen up the wreath and remove it as you would a cake. If it does not want to budge, allow it to set for 15 minutes then use a knife to peel the edges and loosen it up.
  8. Once your wreath is removed, poke your ribbon or fabric though the piece and make a bow for hanging.
