Ephemeral Bird Mosaic

Last winter something broke one of my favorite bird feeders.  I kept it, and in the spring smashed it up and made a mosaic of a bird with it.  I knew when I made it that it wouldn’t last outside.  I made no special effort to research materials, I just enjoyed smacking the thing with a hammer and gluing the pieces on a board.

I hung it from a tree in our yard and enjoyed it all summer.  When I noticed a couple of pieces falling off, I took it down, scraped the tile and glue off and threw the board back in the scrap pile.  A low effort, high enjoyment project.

I didn't take any pictures that I can find before I hung it up, but this is what it looked like

This is the day I took it down.

And all gone.
