Art Camp on Spruce



Cleo and I are hosting an Art Camp in our garage this summer. Yesterday was the first one and it was a huge success! Cleo had so much fun being the leader and she was so good about going around and complimenting everyone on their projects!

Yesterday's theme was birds. I found these birds on Pinterest. {can I get an AMEN for Pinterest} I really tried to stick to my rule of using what I have on hand but I did need to pick up a couple more supplies since we were making so many. 



Each week I am going to try and add a service project into our Art Camp.  This week we made bird seed ornaments. I plan on dropping those off at the local assisted living facility! Hopefully, the residents and birds will enjoy them!


The birdseed ornaments were super easy to make! I found the same recipe over and over again:

2 cups birdseed
2 packs of gelatin
2/3 cups water
some sort of cookie cutter or mold (i used ramekins)
a straw or lollipop stick to make a hole for hanging
twine

add gelatin to water and let it dissolve 
turn burner to medium
heat until the gelatin simmers, stirring frequently
let the gelatin cool
stir in birdseed 
now you are ready to mold your ornaments
let them sit over night
