The 15 Minute Fix: Repurposed Frame Bird Feeder


Happy Wednesday Friends! It's that time of week when I share mini makeovers and quickie garden tips that can be completed in 15 minutes. Today's fix started with a broken yard sale frame...

Remember this yard sale find?  I instantly loved the sweet birdies, but the piece that would allow it to stand was broken. Since there wasn't an option for hanging it, I decided to recreate it as a tabletop bird feeder.

I added on oval of wax paper to the glass top, then...

That took a little less than 10 minutes and I left it to dry.

Once it dried, I used fine grit sand paper to lightly distress it: less than 5 minutes.

Last, I added bird seed, then placed it on my patio table.  Easy-peasy and the birds are enjoying it!
