I love garden art and bird feeders! After seeing this idea in a magazine, I have been buying vintage dishes to make bird feeders. This week, I made several of them to see if they would sell in one of my booths. I painted this planter sage green, and displayed them with rebar threaded through a wire top box.
We are having our grand opening on Thursday night for this new booth I’m doing with my daughter Kelli. It was kind of a last minute thing…the booth opened up and was in a great location, so we decided to take it. You may be wondering what we will have in the booth! Right now it is a mixture of stuff I gathered up from home, my other booths, and Kelli’s home! We hope to be able to paint some furniture, make wreaths, etc!
Don’t know how well the bird feeders will sell, but they have made a cute display for the grand opening! And by the way, the cute hot pink sconces were painted and decorated by Kelli! She had a great talent for making floral arrangements.
This one is made from a striped cup and saucer.
This one is a lavender flowered bowl and a lavender bottle.
And my favorite….a pink depression glass dish and a gold trimmed saucer.
They may end up at my house or at the home of some of my relatives! LOL We’ll see!These may not sell, but were so easy to make. They have a vase glued to the bottom which makes them very easy to slip off the rebar and clean.
Thanks for coming by!
