DIY: Bird Feeder
Posted on April 22, 2015

Because it’s Earth Day, we want to put a little more focus on taking care of our environment and all of its inhabitants.

This DIY bird feeder recipe from Eighteen 25 is a great project for kids and environmentally friendly.


  • 3/4 cup birdseed
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 small envelope of unflavored gelatin
  • cookie cutters, molds or jar lids
  • wax paper


Mix together the gelatin with 1/4 cup of water and bring to a simmer while stirring; continue until the gelatin is dissolved.

Remove from heat and let cool for a minute.

Stir in the birdseed; add a little more if there is liquid still in the bottom of the pan.

Place your cookie cutters out on wax paper and fill half way with the birdseed mixture


Cut the string, knot the end, and push the knot down into your birdseed.


Continue filling with birdseed, push the birdseed evenly into the cookie cutter until it’s full. Make sure to cover the end your string.

Allow seed mixture to dry overnight.

Remove from the hardened seed from the cookie cutters and hang them as you please!
