Happy Friday friends!
When I showed you my repurposed vintage sieve bird feeder a couple of weeks ago I mentioned that I had a few more ideas to help feed our feathered friends.
This tiered stand bird feeder is so easy to make… and no tools required.
I shared this $2 silver plate tiered stand in one of my thrifted finds posts eons ago .
At the time I thought I’d probably take it apart and use the trays for garden plate flowers, but that never happened.
I was in my greenhouse the other day rummaging around and I found it, and I immediately got an idea.
I took it inside and took it apart.
The rods unscrew very quickly. Easy peasy.
Then I simply did a reverse of the trays.
Instead of the small tray being on the top… it’s now on the bottom.
The middle tray is still the middle tray.
And the bottom tray is put on the top with its bottom up.
It acts like a roof for the two smaller trays… to protect them from the rain.
And here’s my tiered stand bird feeder hanging out in the back deck area overlooking the as yet to be cleaned up pond garden area.
The two trays hold more bird seed than I thought they would.
I really love the way it looks.
Simple and elegant for my feathered friends’ pleasure.
Once I was finished taking my pics I hung my bird feeder in the shade so the birdies won’t burn their feet if the trays heat up in the sun.
This has got to be one of the easiest DIY bird feeders ever, and it only cost me $2 and took about two minutes.
Tiered stands comes in all sizes and materials. I’ve seen crystal, glass, pottery, aluminum, silver plate like mine, and there are probably more types that I can’t think of right now.
I’ve seen many at thrift stores over the years and never thought to use them as bird feeders, but now I won’t be able to see them as anything else.
So the next time you see one, maybe you’ll see it as a tiered stand bird feeder too.
Thanks so much for reading, and until next time… keep on keepin’ on.
