I’ve had this in my head for a while, and today, concept became fruition !
While Bob was cleaning up the garage, he came across a sleeve of chicken wire my Dad had made, and some old plates.
It’s definitely a rainy day project.
For any of you knitters and/or crocheters, who never throw anything out – like me – I have all kinds of bits and pieces of yarn.
You might find this kind of fun – a home decorating centre for the birds in your neighbourhood!
We’ve recently found a bird nest in our backyard, and we’re hoping they’ll use these little bits of yarn to make a funky and colourful nest.
All you need is two old plates, some chicken wire, a threaded rod, some rubber washers, a wing-nut and a light hook.
Drill a hole in the centre of both plates, put the rod through, light hook on one end, wing-nut on the other… (cushioning the plate with the rubber washers)
Sit back and enjoy !!!
