Upcycled Yard Sale Bird Feeder

Happy Monday, Friends! Can you believe there's just a little over a week left in July? The year seems to be flying by! Today I have a quick yard sale upcycle to share with you...

Last week, Ginger Grand and I went to a nearby yard sale and I picked up this rusted tray style bird feeder for .25.

I used a wire brush to clean up some of the flaky spots and contemplated how to repair the hole so I could use it as a bird feeder.  After giving it a coat of white spray paint, an idea came to me, and I decided to use one of my thrifted plates, which would hold the bird seed and cover the hole.
