DIY: Winter Birdseed Ornaments

Welcome crafty friends!! It’s Shari here with something a little different for your winter crafting. Today, I’m making Birdseed Ornaments.

As nature lovers, we feed birds all year round, but the cold days of winter are a crucial time to make sure our feathered friends can find what they need. Once you hang your ornaments, you can enjoy watching nature come to life in your yard.

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 cups Wild bird seed- we prefer the nut and fruit type but any mix for birds that are found in your area will work
  • 2 packagies of Gelatin- be sure to use unflavored with no coloring
  • 1/2 cup water

OTHER ITEMS

  • Cookie Cutters- the less detail shape, the better
  • Parchment paper or non stick surface
  • Vegetable oil to coat the side of the cookie cutters (stay clear of Palm oil)
  • Straw and string for hanging
  • Optional- gloves for pressing the seed into the forms

Instructions: Heat water to a gentle boil, add water to gelatine, mix until dissolved. Pour water mixture into the birdseed, stir well to coat all the seeds. Let sit for about 10 minutes. Add oil to the inside of the forms (I use my fingers to get into tight areas. Scoop birdseed into desired forms and pack well. Insert straws for hanging and pack around straws. Refrigerate for about 15 min. Remove the forms and add a string for hanging tied in a knot at the top.

Store unused ornaments in the refrigerator or freezer until ready to use.

NOTE: These are intended for colder climate areas. Gelatin may soften in temperatures above 45 (F) degrees.

Scent with Love

Hi friends! Happy Monday! Please join me in welcoming back special guest Kara Pogreba with a stinkin’ CUTE Lawn Fawn card! Read on and enjoy!

These two aromatic friends are just one of the images from Lawn Fawn’s Scent with Love stamp set.  It’s great for Valentine’s Day, but also for just about any occasion that might “stink”, such as missing someone or being in the hospital.

Lawn Fawn’s Mini Slimline Stackables are a perfect size for this linear card design.  The majority of the white heat embossed sentiment comes from the Scent with Love stamp set, and the Simply Sentiments stamp set.  Letters from Oliver’s Stitched ABCs were ink blended and popped up with foam adhesive.

The background includes both Fairy Dust and Glow-in-the-Dark stencil paste through the Lots of Hearts Background stencils which accentuates the love theme.  The Glow-in-the-Dark stencil paste gives off a wonderful green glow that shows up even with just a little bit of darkness!

The ink blended shades of acid green and brown, along with the stamped fumes emphasize the foul smell emitting from the skunks.  The red/pink are opposite on the color wheel and create a contrast along with the hearts, to balance it out.  The images were colored with Copic markers.  White gel pen added texture to the skunk’s white fur. 

Thank you, Simon Says Stamp, for featuring Lawn Fawn today and allowing us to share some of our favorite stamps, dies, and stencils from the latest Lawn Fawn release!
