The princess has wanted to make a “real” bird feeder for quite sometime now. Last week we finally made one using a recycled bottle (Bacardi Bahama Mama Bottle – a thick plastic bottle is what you are looking for) and a wooden spoon. The decorating process was a no brainer for my daughter she wanted Angry Birds, her reasoning it is a bird feeder. I free handed the Angry Birds onto the bottle with a Dry Erase Marker, once it was approved by management I went over it with a Sharpie and let her paint it.
Once the princess was finished painting the birds, I sealed the birds with an outdoor iridescent sealer. I took and outdoor sealer and added iridescent paint to the sealant.
After the paint was completely dry I too the spoon and cut two holes with an Exacto Knife on a diagonal to ensure the bird seed would come down to the spoon area. Taking some Jute Twine I wrapped the top part of the bottle including the cap.
Very cute project! Looks like your daughter did a great job with the painting.
Thanks for linking up.
