Make a bird feeder using old plates
WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
HERE’S WHAT TO DO:
- Old bowls or plates
- Mosaic tiles or decorative pebbles (optional)
- Wooden tray or mould
- Stucco (optional)
- Sealer (optional)
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.
Press some mosaic tiles or pebbles into the cement for decoration.
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.
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.
Secure your bird feeder in a cosy spot in your garden where you can enjoy your garden friends throughout the day.Lindie Loock is married to John and lives in Swakopmund. She’s a happy mom of 3 children (Jaundré, Talia & Jahzara) and enjoys cycling & crafting in her spare time.
