Today’s craft, which I found from the lovely ladies at eighteen25, is so cute, I cannot wait to try it with my kiddos: Cookie-cutter bird feeders. No wood or sawing or painting or gluing or nailing involved. Just a few materials and a few steps, and then you’ll have such cute bird feeders to hang around!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Gelatine mix
- Twine or string
- Cookie cutters, molds, or mason jar lids
- Wax paper
Then, you’ll need to dissolve the gelatine, mix everything up, and then fill your cookie cutters/molds. The feeders will need to set overnight, but then they’ll be ready to hang around. And hopefully you’ll have little visitors checking them out in no time.

As always, if you try it, let us know how it turns out. And send some pics!
I’m no cooking or crafting guru, so I started these Too Tired to Try Tuesday posts to share craft and recipe ideas that I’ve come across and would really like to try but am just too damned tired (that sounds better than lazy, right?) to get around to. In addition to ideas that I find, I am open to submissions from you–either something tried and true or something you want to try but haven’t had the time to. Just send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with your ideas, and I may share them here. (And by “may” I mean “will definitely”! I just confessed how
lazy tired I am, so if you take the time to send me something to share, I’m going to share it!)
