We recently found a cool looking old pot lid at the thrift shop.
It looked like it had some interesting history, as well as a really pretty patina from its previous life.
We decided to rescue it and turn it into a bird feeder.
Three evenly spaced holes were drilled around the edge.
A black chain was used to complement the dark patina.
Here's the finished feeder, with safflower seed in it.
This is another pot lid feeder we made, using 3 different-sized lids (shown below). Since these lids are a silvery aluminum color, we used silver chain to match. The largest lid is at the top, so any bird poop from perching birds won't land in the lower levels.
