Make a bird feeder using old plates

Make a bird feeder using old plates


  • Old bowls or plates
  • Mosaic tiles or decorative pebbles (optional)
  • Wooden tray or mould
  • Cement
  • Stucco (optional)
  • Sealer (optional)

Step 1

Mix the cement with water and some sand and cover the base of the tray/mould. Add your bowls or plates and smooth the surface.

Step 2

Press some mosaic tiles or pebbles into the cement for decoration.

Step 3

Let it dry for 24 hours. You will see the cement shrinks and pulls away from the side of your tray/mould. You can now easily remove your creation from the mould.

Step 4

You can either paint it or give it a different finish with Stucco (I used the colour Chocolate) and a sealer suitable for outdoor use.

Step 5

Secure your bird feeder in a cosy spot in your garden where you can enjoy your garden friends throughout the day.
