Loop your string and put it thru the bottom of the pot.
Dissolve the gelatine in a 1/4 c of warm water - add 1 T of corn syrup and mix well.
Add 1/2 C of corn meal (we used corn muffin mix) to 1 1/2 C of birdseed mixture.
Mix it all together and spoon into the pot - making sure your string stays center. Place in the freezer accelerate the items setting up. Remove after a few hours and tie a washer on the bottom side of string to hold the 'birdseed bell' from sliding down the string.
