I love this one, I can use one of my bread recipes or frozen store bought bread dough to make it...I have been wanting to make this for a while and now it is time I can do it for our winter birds I like to have variety for them...I ran across this on line...I'm even going to put cranberries in the bread...they love berries...Great for class projects or Sunday School Projects...

How to Make Bird Seed Wreath

Step-by-Step

  • 1If you enjoy birds and birdwatching, here's an easy way to make a bird seed wreath as a treat for the birds in your neighborhood, and to supplement your regular feeders.
  • 2You can start by making up a batch of bread dough or you can use a one pound frozen bread dough.
  • 3Roll your dough into a rope about 30 inches long. Cut the dough lengthwise into three strands and braid them together and place them on a greased cookie pan. You can grease the outside of a round cake pan and use it as a form - although it works just fine without too.
  • 4Cover with a tea towel and let rise until doubled. Preheat your oven to 375*
  • 5Bake your wreath for about 20 minutes. Then brush with whisked egg, cover with wild bird seed, and bake for another 10 minutes.
  • 6Let dry uncovered for 24 hours. Then hang it outside where the birds can enjoy their Christmas present.
