Upcycle: CD Bird Reflectors

Bird Deflectors will help protect your garden from snack-snatching birds. Use fun paint pens to decorate your bird deflectors and hang them in your garden. Hang this craft in your window to deter birds from flying into your window. Birds are especially active in the spring, so protect your garden from birds and protect birds from flying into your windows with these handy deflectors. Decorating your deflector can be as simple or as elaborate as you want, but try to leave some of the shiny CD uncovered by paint to make sure it reflects the sun. Paint pens are a great way to decorate lots of surfaces, but small children under the age of 3 should not use them without adult supervision. You can decorate both sides of your bird deflector by decorating one side of your CD, allowing it to dry, and then flipping it over to decorate the other side.
