How to make a teacup bird feeder

OOh, I do love a craft project that it both useful, thrifty and make use of recycled objects.

This teacup bird feeder ticks all those boxes.

Do you want to know how I made it?

Well I have to say it was pretty easy and I pretty much made it up as I went along

First of all I bought a pretty little teacup from a charity shop and this one appropriately had a little bird on! I think it costs about £1.

I gathered my supplies

and then I got to work.


Step 1 – I gathered everything I needed and read the gorilla glue instructions carefully.



Step 2. I glued the cup to the saucer, holding it firmly in place for 45 seconds and being careful not to glue my skin together!



Step 3. I cut 4 lengths of rope and attached them at a quarter spacing from each other to the bottom of the saucer using the Gorilla glue (it is totally amazing what this glue can stick together)



Step 4. I  tied the ropes around a branch, popped in bird seed and that was IT!


Easy-Peasy. Really pretty and lovely for the birds.

Pin for later….
