Repurposed Vent/Exhaust Hood Bird Feeder

I picked up a small lot of old galvanized vent hoods from a friend and knew immediately I was going to make bird feeders with them. Here's the first one. I modified the base with crescent holes for the feed to slowly flow out of. On top I cut a hole and soldered a key ring on it as a cuff. An old glass fuse fit the hole perfectly to keep rain out. This setup allows the new owner to refill the feeder without having to take apart the whole piece. Last was choosing the color. I painted the "roof" and matched it with a vintage porcelain/enamel plate that I attached modified furniture medallions onto for perches.
