Let’s not keep the little birds hungry! Well, even if they might not exactly be hungry this time of the year they are a joy to watch.
DIY Teacup Bird Feeder
What you need:
- Teacup and Saucer (trift store, dollar store…)
- E6000 adhesive
- String or Twine to hang
- Bird Seed
- 1 Table Knife
Wash and thoroughly dry your teacup and saucer. As you can see, mine don’t match, so this is the perfect time to use up those odds and eds! Especially If you love a teacup but your saucer broke and vice versa. Washing will remove all oils from your hands.
Place your teacup onto the saucer and use a table knife to keep it in place. Sometimes you’ll need to put the knives on the sides of the teacup, sometimes just the back. experiment until it’s the angle you want. Leave the knife in place and carefully remove the cup. Spread a thick layer of adhesive on the teacup and place it on the saucer. Adjust the knife as necessary.
Once completely dry and set up, add a piece of string or twine to your handle and fill with bird seed and hang!
Note: when looking for the perfect saucer and teacup, Set them as you’d want to make your teacup bird feeder. You can see some teacup shapes work better than others.
