What we did... for Valentines day... Over a Month Ago

Wednesday, March 18, 2015

Sooooo  I know I am not up to date AT ALL but hey, better late then never! For Valentines Day, we made birdseed ornaments for some lovely ladies... aunts and grandmas mostly! They were simple and budget friendly!

We mixed a pkt of gelatin and water with about 1/8 cup karo syrup on the stove. 

Add liquid to a glass bowl of birdseed until all was moist. 

We used this heart shaped pan and cookie cutters to mold our ornaments... cookie cutters were much easier to get out after they hardened. 

 The straws were placed in each ornament to leave a hole for string. 

Almost forgot... We used oil to spray the pan and cookie cutters to try and make them a little smoother to get out. This coconut oil spray below is my favorite item from Trader Joe's!

After sitting in the fridge a couple hours we popped them out onto wax paper to completely dry... about 8 hours. 

Our finished product all tied up and ready to package.

Simple and easy packaging works best for a four year old!

I tried to take a couple photos the morning of Valentines Day... it was NOT the easiest and these are the best three of like 100... or something like that!

Poor Noah - I don't even know why this one pops up sideways but I can't get it back the correct way

Blurry - but life is one big ole blur, so why not!?!?
