You've seen Homie Cheryl Hellcat's LOTR table and driftwood key rack, but check out her awesome DIY wall-mounted bird feeder and bird bath! This is the DIY bird feeder and bird bath we made out of some plastic bowls and matching plates for about $3 each.
The birdbath holder is a candle holder that I found from a thrift store that just happens to have a birdie on it. For the feeder, I picked up a carriage bolt (I chose a fairly long one so the birds would have space in the feeder) and a nut for a few bucks from a home store. The Pantile Village Wall Mounted bird table has a mediterranean look with its hand thrown terracotta roof and ivory painted sides.
The feeding area is surrounded by lattice fencework that prevents larger birds squeezing onto the table making for safer feeding for smaller birds. The bird table also features a recycled plastic hygiene tray which can be easily removed to enable cleaning inside the bird table. My husband drilled a hole in the middle of the bowl and plate, as well as two smaller holes in the plate for fastening the string to hang it (he insisted on doing this part).
At the moment my bird bath and feeder consist of those plates you put under potplants, that are just sitting on the lawn. We then glued the plate and bowl to the bolt to add a little bit more stability (the bowl would spin freely if not) and once it was dry it was ready to hang on our fence and fill with bird food!
Your idea looks like a really nice way to add some colour and interest to a fence while also helping the birds.
