I was in the creative mood and wanted to try my hand at bird feeders/bird baths made out of glass ceiling fixtures. I made the one in the background first and then the one in the foreground. Love the design on the 2nd one I made!
I took a craft copper wire and ran it through each hole in the fixture, then through a hole in a button and back up through another button hole and then back through the hole in the shade and then twisted that shorter wire on the longer wire.. That way the button covers the hole and makes everything stay put. They are pretty easy, but you need two people when trying to get the wire even and twisted. (at least I did anyways and hubby was very helpful...thank you honey)
I told Kim over at Shabby Pink and Pretty that I would join Teacup Tuesday again today. This is a different take on teacups and I think I have shared these before so just pretend you haven't seen them. LOL Hubby helped me put these together last year also~ I attached a teacup and saucer to a vintage post and I love it! It adds such a pretty touch to my garden and I have received lots of compliments on them. If I could find a stash of posts I would even make them to sell ~
I urge you to try your hand at creating a birdfeeder/bath. You will have a fun time and you will love how they turn out and best of all they will be your wonderful creation ~
