    Do you think this could be done with empty soup cans? I wonder if they'd be big enough? I want to do this craft with my Girl Scout troop but I don't want to have to buy 12 empty paint cans. We are all about reusing what we already have.

Yes! I love this as an alternative to the peanut butter/pine cone standard. It works for kids with peanut allergies!

    I love the idea of giving the gifts to the woodland creatures in the form of decorations! Very clever. I think my Daisy troop will try this too! Thanks.

    How long does it take for them to become hard?

  • Kimberly Gabel

    For me it took several days to really dry. If you take them out too soon, they fall apart. If you wait 5 days or more they are hard and crumble out. It didn't work right for me. I think I will have to try it again. Hope that helps a little.

    Ok thanks Kimberly. I'll have to explore other ideas. I was hoping to make bird feeders with my preschoolers but we are peanut free so we can't do the good old fashioned way. I saw these and thought they were cute.

* Cut the orange in half. Remove all of the pulp until you are left with an empty shell. Oh, and don’t toss the insides. * Thread your needle with a 2 foot length of yarn. * Poke the needle across the shell and through the opposite side. * Do the same thing on the other side. The goal is to make a “cross” through the center of the orange. * Pull the gathered ends of yarn together and tie a knot at the end. * Finally, fill the shell with your birdseed
