Bird seed wreath and feeders

I saw this idea for a Birdseed wreath with gelatin
8 tablespoons cold water
4 - 1/4 ounce packages Knox unflavored gelatin
1 1/2 cups boiling water
8 cups birdseed
2-3 large straws

1. Empty the 4 packages of gelatin into 8 tablespoons of cold water in a large bowl. Let the gelatin sit for 1 minute.
2. Meanwhile, boil the 1 1/2 cups of water. Add the boiling water to the gelatin and stir for 2 to 3 minutes or until the gelatin has dissolved.
3. Stir 8 cups of birdseed into the gelatin, mixing thoroughly.
4. Let the mixture set for a few minutes, then stir again. Repeat this process a few times allowing the seed to absorb the liquid.  
We took a large straw (Circle K's Big Gulp straws and cut them in pieces for ribbon holes for the ones shaped in cookie cutters)  We did a double recipe.  I bought a bag of wild bird seed and I also recycled the birdseed that I used in her zoo sensory tub last year.  So we ended with one large bundt pan wreath and about 13 small treats shaped with cookie cutters! 
Thanks for looking!
