A sun catcher reflects light and in this way it distracts the birds that wanna disturb the plants ... hopefully ... but they do make a pretty sight with the reflective beads added.
This was what I did .....
Glued two pieces of CD together with their reflective surfaces facing outwards using Lawn & Garden glue.
I glued a Japanese one yen coin in the centre to cover the hole and also some red x'mas deco beads around the hole.
After the set up had dried out I punched the four holes on the CDs using a large metal paper hole puncher.
Then I strung beads together in their various combinations with nylon strings and also copper wires. The nylon strings gave the strung up beads a life of their cos' they tend to bend and not straighten out like those strung up beads on the copper wires.
Once all five sets of sun catchers were completed, I set them up for display using and old bicycle wheel sitting on top of four bamboo poles. I didn't realize that the spokes were angled downwards and after setting up the display for a day the sun catchers all moved to the center of the spokes .... LOL . So now I get them to stay in place by wiring them to the rubber tire on the side. Now the sun catcher set up is standing on the succulent and cacti patch
