Dollar Store Bird Feeder/Met Monday

Dollar Store Birdbath
I bought the following at Dollar Tree:

2 plastic vases
1 plastic tray
I 1st tried tacky glue but it didn't dry clear in the bases so I ended up using E 0006
(I used the tacky glue photos since it shows up better)
Glued the 2 bases together:
Then glued the tray to the top of one of the vases
The finished project:
Time less than 5 minutes
Total cost $3 plus the little bit of glue I used
I can't take total credit for this My hsb had the vision at the dollar store I just put it together So Thanks Chuck!


  1. What a fabulous idea. It looks so pretty and will make the best bird feeder. Love it and very creative. Hugs, Marty

  2. Very pretty and who would have thought..

  3. This is great!! Keep coming up with this stuff...the Dollar Store is inexpensive enough, we can make it go into the negative $$$!!!!


  4. Wow, those birds will think their dinning at the Ritz! I've seen it with clay pots but would have never thought to use those. They certainly don't look plastic from here. I was worried it would break on you and had to go read the post again!

  5. Jo !
    LOve those creative juices ! So cleaver !

  10. Nice job, Love the crystal look! Gotta figure how to do this in a hanging manner. I know I'll never keep the squirrels off it but gotta keep the raccoons away. They are such pigs.
    They got into the sunflower bag in the garage and threw seeds everywhere.
