(Time: 2 to 3 Hours)

Step 1: Mix corn syrup, flour, water and bird seeds together in a bowl.

Step 2: Spray the inside of the plastic eggs with cooking spray, so the bird seed mixture won't stick.

Step 3: Overfill the mixture in both eggs halves. Apply pressure when closing each egg so the halves stick together.

Step 4: Remove the bottom half of the plastic egg carefully so the birdseed mixture can dry (30 to 50 minutes). Next, remove the other half and let that side dry for the same amount of time. Place each egg next to each other in a container (i.e. muffin tin) for balance.

Step 5: After the birdseed mixture has hardened, tie a ribbon around the egg to hang in your yard. The best way to do this is to tie it like a christmas bow and hot glueing the bottom of the ribbon together so it will not slide.
