This one is just a little whimsical. Wonder if the birds think so?
Bird feeders come in all sizes and shapes. This one came about from a candlestick holder I was given when I purchased some silver pieces that I showed you how to clean with Bar Keepers Friend. This one was so banged up that I didn't bother to clean it. I tried to pound it out some and this was the best it was going to get.
I thought I might use it in a bird feeder. What else did I have to go with it?
I found two terracotta pots and the candlestick fit on top of the small one. I spray painted all of them with this green spray paint from Rustoleum. I thought they still needed something so I decided to add some flowers to the small one. Nothing fancy! Things don't seem to last too long here in Florida.
On the bottom one I painted "Got Seed?"
I put the same words on the back side so I could see it from my window. Then I glued the cups on to the candlestick and when it was dry, onto the top pot.
The second bird feeder was a vintage lantern that has seen better days. I found it in a garbage can at a garage sale. I asked if I could have it, and she said yes. I removed the part where the wick came through and added a cup and saucer.
I placed them near one another.
I have several feeders already in the garden. You can see one of them in the background. The one made of vases has a plate on top for seed.
Here is another view of the bird feeders.
As you can see, almost anything can be turned into a bird feeder. Be creative!
