Thrifted Glass Bird Feeders
Put together a shabby-chic bird feeder from thrift store finds and garage sale goodies!
Pick up pretty glasses vases, candy dishes even candle holders where ever you can find them. I became obsessed and had quite the collection....
Play around until you find the right pieces that look good together. Then it is as simple as adhering them together!
Once dry it's time to hang them. This can be done in a number of ways but I reused copper wire and love the look.
These make great gifts too! Think Mother's Day, Teacher Gifts, a Hostess Gift for a gardener or a sweet way to Welcome a New Neighbor.

lovely idea, the birds will be eating in something luxurious looking!
So do you recommend the GE Silicone 1 instead of the DAP Silicone Sealant listed in the directions? My sisters and I made some glass flowers using Gorilla 2 part resin for the glass part and the GE Silicone 1 to adhere the glass to a drilled hockey puck. However, the hockey puck came loose from the glass. We did spray the puck and rebar with spray paint before we glued them so we are wondering if that affected the bond?
