Here are two DIY birdfeeders made from wrought iron candle holders.

This was a quick and easy project. It was just a matter of waiting until I had thrifted what I needed to put them together.


Here’s what they looked like when they came home with me. They cost $1 each



I thrifted these great serving dishes for $2 each. I love that they have the centre handles on them.



I flattened the points, which are meant to hold candles in place, with a hammer so the dishes could sit nicely on top.

Then I spray painted the candle holders with a lovely red, and a fabulous pink.



I glued the serving dishes on with Marine GOOP adhesive.



And that’s it! Here they are, all ready for the garden. I love that they can be carried by their handles. It makes them very easy to move around.

Anyone can do this. It’s easy peasy!


Don’t forget to pin it!
