For the Birds -Bird Seed Cut Outs.

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by kmergirl

I make these in the fall and winter and hang them on the trees and bushes around my house. In the harsh cold days of winter I want to make sure little peeps (birds) will make through the harsh winter. These are fun to make with kids and make a fun weekend family time project. (These are not edible for humans)

When I saw these I was trying to come up with favors for a baby shower. With the theme being owls & other woodland creatures, this seemed perfect. I got a cookie cutter of an owl, squirrel and cardinal and pressed the seed mixture into each one. Cut up some straws and stuck them where I wanted to place the twine after they dried. So far so good! I love that this recipe doesn't require me to add a bunch of other ingredients, so making 20 of them doesn't cost a lot, and it's just really easy. Thanks for this recipe!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In large bowl mix all the ingredients together. Roll mixture out on wax paper. Using a round cookie cutter cut out circles. Make a small hole in the middle of each cut out. Let dry 4-6 hours or over night turning often to dry both sides. Hang in trees and bushes using soft yarn or thread that birds can use in the spring to line their nests.
