How To Make a Bundt Pan Birdseed Wreath

Updated: Dec 24, 2023

A few days ago I heard the much-welcomed sound of birds singing. For those of you who may live in warmer places, birds tend to migrate to warmer places and return in the spring. So after a few months of silence, you can imagine how nice it is to hear them again. Last year I made this wreath and the birds and squirrels LOVED it. This year, I changed up the birdseed a bit and got great results. If you would like to welcome your birds back with a nice treat just read on.

If you have little ones then this is a great family craft to do. If you want you can also use a smaller bunt pan which I will link to if you want to make tinier wreaths that you can hang in your trees like ornaments. This is perfect for decorating a tree or even a porch if you don’t have a yard to work with. They also make FANTASTIC gifts for your friends, family, and neighbors.

The original recipe for this was found on Home is Where the Boat Is.

1.) Measure and set up everything you need ahead of time. Including a bowl large enough to mix all of this together.

2.) Mix the gelatin in water.

3.) Mix the corn syrup, flour, and gelatin mix together. It will look like glue.

4.) Mix in the bird food, one cup at a time till it’s all incorporated. I personally like to put on gloves and mix this by hand to ensure that it’s all properly coated.

5.) Spray your bunt pan liberally with Pam cooking spray. This will help it come right out of the pan.

6.) By the cup full take the birdseed mixture and start to line the bunt pan, pressing down as you go.

7.) Let it set in the bunt pan for 24 hours.

8.) You’ll be able to see that it’s set because it will come away from the sides of the pan a little. Flip the bunt pan and it should fall out without issues. If you see that the top is a little moist, then feel free to let it sit in the air for another 24 hours.

9.) Once you’re satisfied that it’s dry. Take some ribbon or twine and string it around the wreath and hang it in a place that birds will find it.

As I said, this is a great springtime project if you have little children. They’ll enjoy seeing the birds, and if you have cats they’ll enjoy watching them as well! I hope you have a wonderful day! -Heather Autumn
