Replacement legs for lawn flamingos


Flamingos in their native environment
Sooner or later your lawn flamingo's legs with get mangled beyond repair. Rather than replacing the entire flamingo, buy or make replacement legs for the poor thing.

Your flamingos should currently stand on two lengths of 24 inch 8-gauge galvanized steel wire. You need the galvanized wire since this is lawn art (therefore, outside in the inclement weather regularly).

Can I fudge the wire gauge?

Don't get creative with the wire gauge. They are designed to use a specific gauge of wire. The local hardware store might have suitable lengths of replacement wire. Try there first if you are in a hurry to repair your flamingo. It should probably go without saying, but you need lengths of straight wire as opposed to a roll or spool of wire.

Alternately, if you can wait a bit for delivery, you can order replacement legs online which will fit your flamingo perfectly.
