My sister loves crystals, chandeliers, and basically anything sparklely.  I made her this bird feeder out of an old chandelier that I bought at a thrift shop.  Now her yard is starting to match the inside of her house!

Thanks everybody!  It's pretty durable, the only thing we were worried about was someone stealing it, so she padlocked it.  So far, so good!

I'm sorry,

But I'm going to have to steal this idea.  AWSOME!

In fact I'm going to steal it twice, what a great Christmas gift idea for the gardeners in our life!

This is great giving each bird a chance to eat at a different 'table' each time they visit the birdalier.
I have lots of bird feeders in my garden but nothing as grand as this. Its a great double use as something decorative and as a bird feeder. truly inspired!! Grin

I love this, but aren't squirrels a problem?  At my house they would be spilling the seed all over the place.
