birdseed favors {or valentines!}

birdseed favors

While cruising around Pinterest the other week, I came across a tutorial for birdseed favors from Natalie’s blog. Do you remember making these as a kid? I do, and I knew it would be something my almost-three-year-old would love to help with.

 Our recipe made approximately 8 large valentines…

1 1/2 c. birdseed
2 tbsp. flour
4 tbsp. water
2 tbsp. honey

Mix well.

Spray cookie cutters with nonstick spray and fill with mixture.

Poke a hole in the top (I used a chopstick) for the string, remove cookie cutter, and bake at 200 degrees for an hour.

Some clear bags, Twinery twine, and washi tape make for a pretty presentation.

Thanks for reading all about my birdseed favors! Have a crafty day!
