Birdseed Heart Favors

One of the best parts about Christmas is the tree, especially when it's all lit up and decorated!
When I picture forests of pine trees I also think of those cute little birds that live in them, which reminded me of this fantastical wedding favor idea I saw on Intimate Weddings.
These birdseed heart favors are just wonderful and can be used as decorations inside the house or placed outside for the birds when your guests get home! They're so easy to make and SO adorable!

In fact, one of our brides used these very favors at her wedding, so we got to see firsthand how awesomesauce these favors are!
How preciously perfect, right? Here is how you can make your very own birdseed favors:
Step 1: Mix the flour, water, gelatin, and corn syrup. Add birdseed and stir well. 


Step 2: Press the birdseed mixture firmly into the heart shaped cookie cutter. Make sure you wipe the cookie cutter down with cooking spray so it doesn't stick when it's done!


Step 3: Using a chopstick or skewer, make a hole near the top to thread the twine through. 


Step 4: Remove cookie cutter carefully. Let dry for 6-8 hours. 

You can find more detailed instructions at Intimate Weddings!

A little bird told me that these favors are to die for. Do you agree?
