25. For the birds
What could be more fun than making ornaments that are as functional as they are cute? These birdseed ornaments are adorable, and your birdie friends are sure to love them too.
Ingredients: birdseed, raisins, suet, beef fat or coconut oil, cake molds, cake pop sticks and raffia or twine.
Mix two parts bird seed to one part fat, add raisins and birdseed, and form in cake molds. Use cake pop sticks to poke a hole for the twine. Put the ornaments in the fridge to harden them and string with your twine afterward.
Your bird friends will thank you!
