Replacement legs for lawn flamingos


Flamingo replacement legs
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).

Tip: Try to find coated wire to add durability.

Can I fudge the wire gauge?

Don't get creative with the wire gauge. They are designed to use a specific gauge of wire. Your local hardware store might have suitable lengths of replacement wire. Try there to get parts to repair your flamingo.

Err on the side of getting a length of wire which is too long. Most hardware stores can cut it to the length you need.

Note: It should probably go without saying, but you need lengths of straight wire as opposed to a roll or spool of wire.
