Spring is almost here. I’m dying to start planting, but it’s still a bit too early for that. So I spent the weekend doing the not so fun garden clean-up.
And added a little addition for the birds with this simple DIY bird feeder.
I had the spindles that I picked up at the ReStore for $1 and these small plates for $0.50 each at a thrift store.
For this project you will need a stair spindle, small plate, saw, and glue. That’s it.
I used gorilla glue and it seems to have worked great. The only problem was trying to figure out how to let it dry. The easiest way to get it to dry, is to stick the spindle in the ground and then glue the plate on top and just leave it. At first I tried to let the glue dry with the plate upside down while holding the spindle on top. Not a good idea. Did not work.
Now to just keep those pesky squirrels away. Oh yeah and to convince the boys that these aren’t lightsabres.
