There are a lot of the ready made birds for sale but not too many patterns.

I would like to get instructions on how to make birds from PVC pipe.
Would like picture or pattern of lamp post for in front of RV still unable to find one, use a pvc pipe as the post. Help.
Start with a closet flange (toilet) and build up using 4" PVC. This flange lets you use tent pegs to secure it to the ground. Prime and glue flange to first tube. If you want a place to hang a sign, use a 4" T with the small side for 2" pvc . Glue this in as well. Drill a 2" x 18-20" piece of PVC for and add cup hooks and then glue on an end cap to the tube.
Does any one know where to get free patterns to make PVC birds? I would love to make couple for my yard. Thanks.
You just need to type in PVC craft birds in your search area. Tons of pages will pop up with directions on how to make these birds and many other crafts using PVC pipes.
Where can I get PVC templates to make birds? I'm 61 and I need to do something. I have one of these birds that I got about 20 years ago and it still looks good.

Looks for patterns for birds using PVC pipe (10/31/2005)
I have been looking through sites to find PVC patio furniture patterns and have found the site http://www.u-bild.com. The patterns were not free but very reasonable $9.95 ea. or $24.95 for the entire set of patio furniture. You may want to at least check out the site. (04/14/2006)
I make birds using PVC pipe and sell the patterns on ebay. Go to ebay and use "advanced search" by "seller". My seller name is floridajim
You could also reach me at email at floridajim007 AT earthlink.net
Hope this helps. (06/05/2006)
I don't know where there are any bird patterns but I know that http://www.familyfun.com has some PVC patterns. I think they are a basketball goal, a puppet theater, a soccer goal, etc. If you're making them to sell, these may be good ideas. (06/06/2006)
I am also looking for a free pattern for the lamp post made from PVC pipe. I went camping this week and saw one in front of an RV trailer. Can anyone help? (04/06/2007)
I found a website with a picture of the PVC lamp post. Go to: www.rv.net
I think I have the patterns you are describing. But free might be stretching it. These birds sets sell easily for $40-$50 for the Herons and slightly less for the egret sets. Then there are two sizes of stick birds which are very popular. I have been planning to sell these plans on the internet but haven't got set up yet. If you want to pursue this write me at charlierusty1234 AT yahoo.com. I can send pictures if you like. (09/19/2007)
I have patterns for several types of the PVC birds, heron, egret/ibis and some smaller ones that you stick in the ground. charlierusty1234 AT yahoo.com (10/11/2007)
