this easy-to-make seed wreath is sure to be a hit with your feathered friends

1/2 cup warm water
1 package (1/4-ounce) unflavored gelatin
3 tablespoons light corn syrup
3/4 cup flour
4 cups birdseed
Nonstick cooking spray

POUR water into gelatin and stir until dissolved.

WHISK in corn syrup and flour, and stir into a smooth, thick paste.

ADD seeds and stir until they are well-coated to keep the wreath from falling apart (this is the sticky part).

COAT a bundt pan with cooking spray. Using a spatula, press the seed mix into the pan until well-packed and even.

LET sit overnight.

REMOVE from mold by turning upside down on a plate when the wreath is hard and the edible “glue” has turned white.

ADD a ribbon and hang from a tree.

NOTE: This bird treat is best left outside during cooler weather, as warmer temperatures can soften the gelatin, and the wreath may fall apart.
