So, a friend posted this link with super sweet gift tags for making birdseed ornaments as gifts. I used the idea and gift tags but needed another "recipe" for the ornaments because I didn't have unflavored gelatin in the house and when the grocery store (ok there is one that is about 10 minutes away but I always feel as if I need a shower afterwards) is half an hour away and you have two kids...one snotty and coughy and one that um...has a lot to say...you find alternative means when possible.
So, I found this recipe that used nuts, birdseed, and coconut oil. This I could do. And Lorelei could do. So, we did.
