We've made a variety of birdfeeders over the last couple of years but this one is my new favorite. I found the directions on Pinterest ( http://www.hometalk.com/687521/bird-seed-wreath/photo/140450 )and did it like a science experiment with the kids counting off the ingredients as they went into the bowl. We made them up in antique cookie pans and large open cookie cutters. It was easy to make the holes with straws. They were supposed to let them dry over night and put the ribbons in but no one wanted to wait and most did great. A couple had to be patted together again. No hungry birds in our neighborhood this month!
