Birdfeeder from 'junk glass' - First completed 'major' project!
I've been pottering away and have made several small birdfeeders from cups and saucers (I'll post a photo in a follow-up to this message.) and I have a few others things about to come off the 'production line'!
However, I really wanted to show off my large birdfeeder! I had a glass lamp-shade and a 'divided' plate and decided to glue the lampshade to the plate. I tested it out to make sure birdseed would flow under the lip of the lamp-shade onto the plate. I then covered the hole at the tope with a small plate as I didn't want birds going down into the seed reservoir. I was concerned this little plate would fall off so I attached some loops (using bit of an old necklace) so I can slide the plate up the ropes to refill the birdfeeder and then lower the 'hole cover'.
I just need to make some loops at the tops of each rope piece and put them on an "S" hook and hang in a tree!
What do you think? :)
