Upcycled Vintage Cookie/Candy Tin Bird Feeders

An abundance of cookie/candy tins at thrift stores and garage sales make these so fun to do. Usually connected with a candlestick and topped off with different vintage items such as a metal light shade, hurricane lamp burner, a steamer basket and an aluminum bowl. The decorative Daher tins from England are my favorite ones to work with.
