Homemade Birdseed Molds

I’ve been trying to get a number of items checked off the “to do” list especially ideas I’ve pinned on Pinterest. Homemade birdseed molds was one of those projects I had pinned and planned to do a year ago – I just had not gotten around to. The idea was shared by Stomping in the Mud blog and looked like a great activity for the two of us. Thanks for a warm (50s) afternoon, we got outside and completed it.


  • 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 birdseed molds dry for several hours. (Or, if you’re like me and forget about them, let them dry 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 in your yard for the birds to enjoy! Then find a spot to sit and watch. How many birds will you see snacking on your feeder?
