A Tea Party for the Birds

I found these stair spindles for $1 each at the ReStore and had these small plates from a thrift store. I simply glued them together and added some bird seed. Now I just need to wait for spring to arrive!

    I've made several of these feeders, but my big problem is getting them to stand up straight in our rocky, mountain soil (and not, it's not Rocky Mountains, it's Blue Ridge Mountains). Any suggestions would be warmly received and deeply appreciated.

    Maybe some Quickcrete in a container of some kind to get the post to stand straight? I have thought of using plastic coffee container,especially 1 with handle. Then grab handle with 1 hand and post with other to move. Or you could punch hole in a can with a nail and wire around post using soil,gravel,sand to fill can. Plant some flowers around it to hide container. You only have fight your rocky soil on surface to set the container. These are ideas I have not tried, but explaining them here they REALLY seem doable!

    Try using a tomato cage. Cut to size and put the wires into the ground. Paint the cage any color you want or buy the ones that are already colored.

Inspired? Will you try this project? Let the author know!
