DIY Tea Cup Birdfeeder

165K Views
I feel certain that many of you might just be bird-lovers, birdwatchers, perhaps even photographers of specialized bird species.Well, personally I enjoy watching a variety of birds that soar, nest and tweet in our backyard. From the majestic beauty of the red tail hawk as he sits on the branch of an oak tree or the brilliant crimson red of the cardinal flying from limb to limb. So when we were given the challenge of what to do with a Tea Cup I knew immediately that I wanted to use my tea cup to enhance the quality of life for my bird friends.

Once this idea popped into my head, I was so anxious to get it made and get it hung on a Tree branch.I almost felt like the birds were just waiting for me to hurry up and get it made.The great thing about this project is it is FAST and easy too, so your bird friends won't have to wait long either.
It has been recommended by several readers that epoxy glue or E6000 glue be used for this project rather than crazy glue to insure the project stays secure.

    My pups just bark at the birds if they perch on anything in their view. I was thinking of doing this and putting hens and chicks in it. It's just so cute. I think I'd even hang it from a short Shepard's hook. ❤

      My feeder is in the backyard so the sprouting seeds don't interfere with the Bermuda grass.

    I've thought about doing like this for a while only not to feed the birds, wouldn't last long with my piggy birds! I was thinking along the lines of a small water fountain for my pond. I have a tea pot planter why not some cups?
