All you will need are a few ingredients and you will have a gorgeous and fun bird seed ornament to enjoy.

To make it you will need the following ingredients:

  • 1/2 Cup of Water
  • 3 Table Spoons of Corn Syrup
  • 4 Cups of your favorite Bird Seed You can also add some fruits and nuts to it as well.
