Valentine's Day Birdseed Hearts-Bird Feeder
Things needed for this project:
1 1/2 c. Birdseed – (Wild Bird Seed)
2 small packets of Knox Gelatin
Twine, raffia or wire for hanger (don’t use bright colored ribbon, it scares the birds away)
heart silicone candy/cupcake mold
1/2 c. water
Dissolve a packet of Knox in 1/2c. of water, bring to simmer and stir until dissolved.
Let cool slightly.
Add 1 1/2 c. bird seed and mix very well until seeds are coated. If you have a lot of excess liquid add a little more seed.
Spoon the seeds into a mold, filling it half way up, and pressing down to make sure it is well packed.
Lay tied twine on top of the pressed seed, and fill up the rest of the way so twine is fully covered.
Let it set in the freezer for a few hours.
Remove from mold and Let it dry out for a few days …flipping it so it drys out completely on both sides and all the way through.
You want it really hard and dried out so you can hang it in your tree.
Put a tag on it with instructions to hang it in a tree and give these out as Valentine's
Crayon pieces (Tip: dip crayon pieces in warm water to make removing the paper a lot easier)
Heart-shaped metal or silicone cookie or muffin tin
Double-sided foam mounting tape
Colored card stock
Heat the oven to 250°.
Fill each mold with crayon pieces and bake until the crayons melt, about 10 to 15 minutes (Tip: Place a sheet pan under the crayons to catch any drips).
Once they’re cool, remove the hearts from the molds and smooth any rough edges by rubbing them on a piece of scrap paper.
Use small pieces of foam tape to stick each heart to circle, heart or square piece of card stock, then add your message.
Valentine's Day Rolo Pencils
This is good for one rolo pencil. Increase your supplies to however many you want to giveaway.
3 ½” x 4 ½” yellow cardstock
3 ½” x 3/8” pink cardstock
Scrap piece of pink cardstock
3 ½” length of silver metallic ribbon
Zig zag scissors
Paper crimper or scoring tool
Adhesive of your choice
1 Hershey Kiss
To get started, take the yellow cardstock and put the 4 ½” side of the cardstock into the crimper and crimp. If you do not have a crimper you can score the yellow cardstock every ¼” until fully scored from end to end. You can also crimp the silver metallic ribbon.
Next, trim one of the 3 ½” edges of the yellow cardstock with zig zag scissors.
Apply adhesive to the yellow cardstock and roll it around the Rolo keeping the zig zag closed to one edge of the Rolo. You will have some of the Rolo showing on the other end.
Wrap and adhere the 3 ½” x 3/8” pink cardstock around the end of the Rolo that is still showing. Next, trace around the nickel and cut out the circle to cover the exposed end of the Rolo. This will complete the “eraser”.
Wrap and adhere the sliver metallic ribbon right under the pink “eraser”.
Lastly, adhere your Hershey Kiss to the other end of the Rolo and cut off the white kiss tag if it is showing.
Tie A Valentine's Day Tag on it and giveaway
