Welcome to my kids craft post!
Hadley and I thought it would be fun to make birdseed ornaments for gifts this year. We found this post and used the recipe to make our own!
Cookie cutters work great but I have very few of those so we made most of ours in a muffin pan.
Straws were pushed into each ornament to hold a space to put our ribbon through.
After they had set up we used 5/8" red cotton stripe ribbon to hang our ornaments.
For reference, the recipe from the linked post made a full pan of 'muffins' as well as 2 cookie cutter ornaments.
Since we used a ribbon wider than our hole we used silver string/metallic ribbon as our threader.
Worked like a charm!
These were really fun to make & didn't take too long! I think we will make another batch up for more gifts!
There are even directions for making a box on the blog we found the recipe- so I used some Core'dinations to whip up a quick box, tying it with that same cotton/stripe ribbon. I added some holly leaves because they always make holiday gifts look festive!
A bit of the new kraft raffia for padding inside!
