Repurposed Twin Bird Silverplate Platters Bird Feeder


I've been wanting to use this partitioned silverplate server for a while and finally got after it. The ends of spoons make for perches and some serve as the support points for the suspending chains. The small candy dish made a great top and the birds came from some ornate napkin holders. This one has the option of putting out two different bird seed varieties with the partition in the middle. Small holes were drilled in the bottom for any drainage needs with rain.

    How did you join everything together? solder? This absolutely gives me goosebumps, it's such a beautiful combination of things I love best...birds, silver and whimsy!

      Definitely solder. I also used a propane torch since it's heavy/thicker metals I wanted to join.

    What kind of bit did you use to drill holes?

      When drilling holes into metal I mostly use self tapping screws to complete or start a hole. I find it’s much more economical to use them vs destroying drill bits and uni bits. 👍

    Lol! Great idea for a couple silver plate pieces looking rough. My divided sterling silver divided piece is still in use on holidays.🙂 love the perches. Good use for thrift store finds too..👌

      Exactly. I seldom use things that still have great value or purpose for me until it's time for a "repurpose" into something that hopefully makes the new creation last far longer than its original intent. Good luck with your future projects!
