Feed the Birds

This simple bird food wreath looks very jolly hanging from the Blackthorn tree in my garden. It’s made in a small cake mould, using half a litre of strong gelatine combined with wild bird food (5 leaves of gelatine to 500ml). Leave in the fridge overnight to set then remove from the mould and hang in your garden for the birds s to enjoy this Christmas.

    Your garden must be full of birds – such up-market dining. Great idea and I’m definitely going to try one.

#knittersofinstagram #knitting #knitmas #handmadechristmas #makingchristmas More from Mother in Law's knitivity - Mary, Joseph and the baby Jesus - this always reminds me of school nativity plays, where the girl playing the angel always manages to be centre stage!!!
#knitivity #knittednativity #knitmas #knittersofinstagram Happy knitmas! My Mother in Law has unpacked her knitted decorations, here are the three kings, part of the nativity scene which grows every year and now fills the window ledge!
#knittersofinstagram #knitmas #knitting #handmadechristmas #knittednativity Throwback to last December's family outing to Chester Zoo lanterns, a beautiful night. Ah, we knew how to Christmas in the 1960's. Missing my lovely Mum today - and love that we're both wearing outfits she made (crimplene, whatever happened to you???) The fabulous @wildzucchinis getting festive at Cockermouth Food Festival today xx
