More Birdfeeders..directions here and more pics under my other post.

by Renee
Directions for making these listed under each pic of are more directions...
All of the dishes are glass
I use the diamond drill bit to drill on my husbands drill press
I put a little piece of styrofoam under dish to cushion and for the drill bit to hit when going thru plate
I put dish in shallow baking pan and fill with just enough water to cover dish
To glue cup to plate I use E6000 glue found at Hobby Lobby, it should set for 72 hrs.
The chain goes thru hole in glass...attaches to the hooks i found at Hardware store in the Ball chain section...same hook goes on top of chain...then put the ring through each hook.that is your hanging ring. Usually 3-4 chains for each dish depending on how big the dish is..There are more instructions and pics under my other birdfeeder post...Directions are under pics also..

    I see the crystal has a hoop in the top of crystal which is attached to the chain below the saucer. How did u attach the hoop to the chain? Also, how did u attach the 3 chains at the top to "S" hook? Thank you!
