I found an old chandelier in a friend's basement but wasn't sure what to do with it... I was very inspired by this post: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=48418.0

It was super easy and cost almost nothing (that is if you already have a chandelier and some spray paint).  I just cleaned it really well and spray painted it white.  I found the crystals at IKEA for $6, I also used some live moss to make it fit better in a garden.  I haven't seen any birds out there yet but I'm sure it will be a hit...

Very cute! Smiley I've seen the little birdfeeders made from teacups, but the chandelier is a step up! You could always epoxy on some teacups to the candleholders to hold more seed, if needed.  I looove this idea!
