This past weekend was a BLUR. My cute sister-in-law got married this weekend and we had the chance to help put everything together for her BEAUTIFUL outdoor themed wedding.
Here’s a peak at the DIY wedding favors we made!
DIY Bird feed Wedding Favors:
(Link to Original Post: http://www.intimateweddings.com/blog/birdseed-wedding-favor-hearts-easy-and-inexpensive-diy/ )
You will need:
- 3/4 cup flour
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 envelope unflavored gelatin (2.5 teaspoons)
- 3 tbsp corn syrup
- 4 cups birdseed
You will also need:
- large mixing bowl
- heart shaped cookie cutter
- nonstick spray
- chopstick or bamboo skewer for making a hole in the ornament
- parchment paper
- cookie sheet
- jute or raffia
- card stock
- rubber stamp
- hole punch
Mix flour, water, gelatin and corn syrup. Add birdseed and stir well.
Make sure to spray some non-stick on your hands.. this stuff is disgustingly sticky.
Spray your heart (or really whatever shape you’d like!) mold, and get to work!
I would make little balls of bird seed, place them in mold and then press it to fill the mold.
If you want to hang these (obviously, its for birds so hanging from trees is ideal) make sure to poke a hole to stick the ribbon or jute cord through!
Once you’ve laid them all out, let them dry for 6-8 hours before doing anything with them!
If you want to make these cute hearts yourself, here’s the link to the original post:
Also here is a link to some cute heart shape cookie cutters for molding them:
