Two Upcycled Bird Feeders

These are a couple of the latest upcycled bird feeders I've created.  The first was a pain bending and molding the license plate into a square.  Might be my first and last square license plate "anything".  I'm really happy with the spoon covered bird perch on the side.  The second feeder started as an Arvin small space heater.  I gutted it and cut and modified the outside frame to create an arch so birds could come from either side and perch on either the terrace, the drawer handle or on the brass cup inside.  The rest is some metallic blue paint, some vintage valves/knobs and more.
