Birdfeeder from Old Lighting



I have 4 of these lights, 3 upright and one wall mount, someone was throwing them out, can you imagine? I love them. I kept them original for awhile, I used them on my mantel last year for Fall and for Christmas. 


I used them in displays with my flowers


I decided to paint one, for my Aqua Garden...


This one had several broken pains of glass, so I decided it make a good bird feeder. A super easy transition.


I painted this one also, and glued a little dish with a bird on light stem, that's it. That's all I did, just add birdseed, and the Birds love it!
 


Here it sits on top of a post, I still need to have it permanently mounted






Thank you for visiting with me today, hopefully you have been inspired in some small way...

Please leave a comment so I know you were here, they really do make my day!
As always if you like it, PIN IT

God's Blessing to you and your families, have a wonderful day!

  10. What a brilliant reuse of your light. I love that you even added a bird statue in it. It must be fun to watch and see the birds come and snack. Really well done.
