Re-purposing to Create a Bird Feeder
Using 1 thrift store dish, 1 skewer, and 1 metal bottom of a broken solar light - I created a bird feeder.
I found this dish at a thrift store for $1. I knew I wanted to turn it into a bird feeder.
I bent a metal grilling skewer in 1/2 so that it would fit into my solar stake securely. I used silicone to adhere a metal grilling skewer to the bottom of the dish. I let it dry for 24 hours.
I had a solar dragonfly stake light that didn't work anymore. I pulled it apart, threw out all of the solar pieces, and was left with the stake.
I put the stake into the ground, and the skewer piece into the stake.
When it was all done, I added the bird seed.
The birds are enjoying it. My squirrel loves to try and steal from it - although he can't quite reach it from the branch or ground and the birds chase him away. It's quite entertaining for the family to watch.
A little hard to see in this picture, but here is where it sits. It is protected from the elements by the tree it's under.
