    What a great idea to reuse old plates. A tea cup and saucer would work too.
  • Yeah I've seen them done with a tea cup and they are so cute.
  • Very tweet!

    I have made these for years. They are all over my yard in the spring and summer!

    Love this. I want to try with a shallow bowl for a bird bath.
  • Patti , I've seen it done with a cup and saucer and the cup is used at the bird bath.

    I read that a open bird feeder can breed unhealthy conditions for birds and even kill them, because they can poop in them and spread diseases? Anyone ever heard this?
  • Did not know this. Even my store bought feeders have an open saucer base on them.

    I would use E6000 glue instead -- sometimes gorilla glue doesn't adhere to glass.
  • I've made several of these feeders, but my big problem is getting them to stand up straight in our rocky, mountain soil (and not, it's not Rocky Mountains, it's Blue Ridge Mountains). Any suggestions would be warmly received and deeply appreciated.
