Another easy DIY- Teacup bird feeders

     Another fun project this winter has been making these sweet teacup bird feeders. Our family gave these out as Christmas gifts because they are charming, relatively inexpensive, and easy to make.

     To start, gather your materials:

Tea cup and saucer (they don't have to match)
One 1/4" hex nut
One dowel rod (we cut ours in half)
Epoxy (waterproof)
Spoon (optional)

     Simply glue your cup to you saucer. Allow time to dry. They glue the hex nut to the bottom center. Allow time to dry, Glue the dowel into the hex nut. All time to dry. Add some bird seed and plan to add and add and add because our little bird feeder is quite the hot spot.
And the seed is going....going....gone!

  4. I love this idea Alexis. You can find miss matched teacups and saucers at Salvation Army and Good Will all the time! I'll have to start collecting some. In the summer, you can fill them with water. That way you don't have to worry about seeds getting mushy in the rain.
