Mark Rayner shows you how to build a simple whirligig bird scarer using wooden spoons and testpots.
You will need: Eight wooden spoons, we got ours from a discount store, a small piece of flat wood, garden stake, exterior PVA glue, paintbrushes, pencil, set square, electric drill, with 70mm circular wooden hole cutter, 7mm drill bit screwdriver, sandpaper, small washers and one exterior wood screw. Resene Quick Dry and three Resene Testpots, Resene All Black, Resene Fizz and Resene Kermit.
Top tip: If necessary, use extra washers between the garden stake and the back of the daisy head to ensure it turns freely without catching on the garden stake.
Complete the daisy head by pushing a wooden spoon into each of the holes, fixing with PVA glue. Angle each spoon slightly, in the same direction. Allow glue to dry.
