The birds should also feel it's Christmas time

I found this very sweet bird food recipe on Stylisimo.  I did have a go at making it last night with the view of taking photos as I went along. Sadly I have to report that I didn't manage to make it look anywhere as nice as the ones made by Sylisimo so not worthy of featuring here.

Do follow the procedure carefully and you will be laughing. Do not make any short cuts! Believe me the coconut oil really has to cool down before mixing in the seeds! 
Here goes:
  • Melt some coconut fat and let it cool in cold water.
  • Blend in some bird seeds.
  • Once the fat starts to harden again pour in gingerbread shapes
  • Make sure to make a hole for the cotton I used small birthday candles but anything will do.
Once set hang out in the garden for the birds to feast on this Christmas!

  1. This is lovely! What a cute idea. I wish I could get the birds to eat outside our window on the bird feeder we have... it seems they have enough food in this warm weather. When the snow comes (fingers crossed) I want to do something like this!

  2. LOVE this idea! We had a bird house but the squirrels attcked it. This seems more bird friendly?! And so chic!

  3. Agree it seems quite difficult to get the birds to eat! Meanwhile they do look very pretty and the squirrels are having a feast!
