Hello and welcome back to Feeding Big. If you are new here, let me say that I am happy you found your way over and I hope you will take a while to look around.
I want to start out by saying that I am so very please to work with three great bloggers: Kathe from Kathe with an E, Christine from Rustic and Refined and Heather from New House, New Home, New Life. I love working in the yard and garden and have fun creating yard art too! These lovely ladies and I will be sharing our yard art ideas with you over the summer! I hope you will enjoy.
I also want to tell you that I am a Procrastinator! Yes, I admit it! I wear the badge with shame. I tell myself I will get be better, but I just can’t seem to get there. I am at a blogger conference as you read this and of course, I waited till the day I had to leave to write the post!
So, after admitting that to you, I want to tell you that this Bird Feeder that I created for this post has some issues!! Issues that I was not able to take care of before I had to write this post. I will tell you the correct thing to do (and perhaps I will even admit my mistakes)
So lets get started.
On a recent trip to the Goodwill, I found a glass cup and a little tea plate. I thought, what I great bird feeder this would make. I also found a great tea pot that a neighbor was selling at a yard sale. I was ready to get in my craft room and get busy.
I used Silicone Tub and Tile sealer to seal the cup to the plate. I let it dry for about 24 hours.
I was going to set it on a piece of copper tubing, but realized (this morning!) that the silicone would not stick on the copper. I haven’t found a sealer that will do that yet. I am sure there is something out there that will work, but I don’t have the time to search it out. I will update you when I find something.
What is a girl to do? I thought my yard art would be messed up! Panic began to set in! I began to search around the house and found a great little plant stand that would work for now. I set the cup/plate in it, place it in the garden and was happy.
I had a shepherds hook that I stuck in the ground and placed the tea pot on it.
I am pretty happy with the way it all looks. I will be honest and tell you it is not what I had hoped for, but it will do. I will be on the lookout for a bonding agent that will adhere copper to glass. Do you know of one? Please let me know if you do!
Please stop by these other lovely blogs and see what they have created! I am sure they are not procrastinators like me and have shared something wonderful!
Do you need one more project for your garden? How about this Butterfly Feeder I made with Dollar Tree items?
Here are a few more great ideas from some of my blogging buddies!
Make sure you check back next month when we share more yard art with you. I promise, I won’t procrastinate! (Well….maybe just a little)
