I make these birdfeeders every year at holiday time as a special treat for my bird and squirrel
friends. These birdfeeders will last a long time if they stay dry, so hang them in a covered area if you
can.

What you will need:
1 cup birdseed
1/4 cup water
1 small envelope of knox gelatine
Waxed paper ot parchment paper
A large cookie cutter
A drinking straw    
String
Small saucepan

How you make it:
Lay your cookie cutter flat on the waxed paper. Cut the straw to three inches long. (When you
assemble the birdfeeder, the straw will stand up in the middle.

Mix your gelatine together with 1/4 cup of water in a small saucepan and bring it to a simmer on
the stove. Keep stirring until the gelatine is completely dissolved (as soon as it is invisible).

Remove it fron thr heat and let it cool for a minute. Stir the birdseed, adding more birdseed if there
is still liquid in the pan.

(I used a snowflake cookie cutter, but of course this will work with any shape. Also, you might need
to adjust the amount of birdseed & gelatine, depending on the size and depth of your cookie cutter.)
