Hanging Bird Feeder

Introduction: Hanging Bird Feeder

Made from various things left behind by the previous owners of my new place.

Step 1: Materials Misused:

  • Plant hanger with 3 chains
  • Crystal ash try (thrift stores have loads of them)
  • Gas stove burner grate

Step 2: Assemble the Feeder

  • Turn burner grate upside down
  • Attach chains from hanger to burner grate - evenly spaced
  • Place ash tray on grate

    Step 3: That's It!!

    • Hang from a tree branch
    • Fill with bird food of choice
    • Enjoy the squirrel acrobatics getting to the feeder!!!

      To prevent the burner grate from becoming rusty: spray paint with a rust prevention paint (making sure it is clean first). This is my kind of crafty with unusual items!
