This is a project that has been around for a while, but one that I am only now getting to. It is a teacup bird feeder using a thrift store teacup and saucer. I had this teacup and saucer in my booth and in my Etsy, and it didn’t sell in either place. So, rather than bring it to Goodwill, I decided to make a bird feeder with it.
Here are some I found on Pinterest.
There are quite a few variations involving adding chain or metal, but this hanging version is quicker and less expensive, since all I have to do is hang it from the tree or a shepherd’s hook. You can also add some copper tubing pieces or other tall upright items to have it staked in your garden beds.
For mine, I laid the teacup on the saucer to see where the contact points were going to be on the saucer and the cup. That is where I added the E6000 adhesive. Once that dried, I added the hanger, hung it in the tree, and added some bird seed.
Done. I completed a project on my “want to make” list and I’m sure the birds will be happy!
