Homemade Birdseed Molds

I’ve been trying to get a number of items checked off the “to do” list especially ideas I’ve pinned. This was a project I planned to do a year ago and was shared by Stomping in the Mud blog. Finally, my sonĀ and I got outside on a warm (50s) afternoon and made it a reality.


  • 3/4 cup of Flour
  • 1/2 cup of Water
  • Unflavored Gelatin
  • 1 cup of Birdseed
  • Muffin tin coated with nonstick spray
  • Straws (we used 2 cut into 3 pieces each)
  • String


Start by mixing the flour, water and gelatin.

Birdseed Molds: Stir Ingredients

Add the birdseed. We poured about 1 cup into our bowl. I don’t have any pictures as we quickly realized it was much easier to mix with our hands versus a spoon. It really has a fun texture and cleans off easily.

After it’s fully combined, press the mix into the muffin tin sections. Then insert a small straw into the middle.

Birdseed Molds: Formed

Let the molds dry for several hours. Or, if you’re like me and forget about them, overnight. Pull out the straws and flip the tin over on a sheet of waxed paper. The molds should slide out on their own and will still be damp underneath. Allow to sit until completely dry.

Add a string and hang for the birds to enjoy!
