Repurposed Teapot Birdhouse

I cleaned the basement recently and threw out a lot of junk until I ran across this aluminum teapot.

This was getting repurposed! 

Aluminum is very soft so it was easy to remove the handle. 

In the place of the handle on one side I added the end of a broken silver plated knife for the bird perch.

At the other end I added a decorative metal piece and a length of chain.

I hung the birdhouse outside and spray painted it with Krylon Color Master in Ivy Leaf. (Amazon affiliate link)

This was one piece I was happy to save from the trash. 

Now that the snow is finally gone and the sun is shining bright today, I can't wait for the birds to find this beautiful birdhouse!

  1. That little birdhouse is adorable. You are so good at the unpredictable!

    1. Oh thanks so much Sugar! I just love creating something on a whim and this was one of those things... before I drop it into the goodwill box, what can I make from it? LOL

  2. I have one that I spray painted several years ago and yet to hang it. I have the thoughts, sometime I have a hard time to getting around to finishing up. Love that you took the handle off and hung it this way....cute.

    1. Thanks so much Pam. I hope you are hanging yours out now too! :) Hope the birds like it!

  3. I love your birdhouse and how smart you repurposed the tea kettle! It is just lovely, and I especially like the green color. What a great job!
