Make a Bird-Feeder Wreath

I came across some recipes for making your own bird feeders and since bird-watching is one of our hobbies around here, as well as something we do for school, the kids and I made one for our bird watching station. 
It's very simple.

All you need is 
Corn syrup

We used 5 tsp gelatin mixed together with 1 cup of very warm water. 
We then added 1.5 cup flour
6 Tbsp corn syrup

8 cups of birdseed
Mix all thoroughly!

Spray a bundt pan liberally with non-stick spray.
Press your mixture into the form and let dry for 24 hours or more.
If your pan doesn't want to release right away, you can soak the bottom side in some VERY warm water for a few minutes. It helped to loosed our wreath up enough to let go easily. 
Take some yarn, twine, jute, ribbon or whatever suits your fancy and tie it into your favorite tree.
