Make a contemporary birdfeeder from vintage glass shades

Make a contemporary birdfeeder from vintage glass shades | Upcycled Garden Style | Scoop.it

People tend not to know what an outdoor orb is (since I made the phrase up), so I’ve decided to change the name to White Glass Shades that Every House Used to Have But Now Doesn’t Because We all Threw Them Out Like Idiots. And Now We Have to Buy Them From Secondhand Stores.

 

How’s that?

Eight, 10- and 18-inch-diameter PVC pipes cut to varying heights serve as the bases for these mosaic pillars. Overturned terra-cotta saucers turn two of the pipes into pedestals; the third cradles a flowerpot.

Gumboot planters on the garden gate

Gumboot planters on the garden gate | Upcycled Garden Style | Scoop.it

There are drainage holes in each of the boots so that excess water can escape after watering. A power drill was used to drill four or five 1/4 inch holes through the soles and then another hole on the backside of the boot at the top so the boot can be hung on the fence using a cup hook. A nail hammered into the fence on a slant to prevent the boot from slipping off would work well too.
