Bird Seed Wreath

Spring isn’t quite here in Indiana, in fact it snowed yesterday.  I swear this is the longest winter in the history of winters!  However, I have faith that only a couple of more weeks and Spring will be here to stay.  I can’t wait to see my first daffodil blooming!   Making a birdseed wreath is a fun way to welcome in Spring.   These are so simple to make and would make great hostess or housewarming gifts.

4.   Next press it tightly with the back of a wooden spoon into the bundt pan. Use wet hands to press it more if you need to.   Let it dry overnight.

5.   Once completely hardened overnight it will come right out of the your pan.

6.   I used some drop cloth fabric strips ripping it to tie a ribbon around it and add a bow.   Hang it in an area that won’t be exposed to the rain.
