Tea Cup Bird Feeder Craft

If you saw my Deck Makeover Project last week, you’ll remember that I promised to show you how I made my very own Tea Cup bird feeder craft. It’s so easy, you might just want to cover your yard in them 🙂

I found the idea for this project on Pinterest (see the original pin here), but there weren’t any directions on how to make one. Not like it’s rocket science or anything, but I didn’t want to make the bird feeder only to have it fall apart in the weather.

That’s when I came across this adorable serving tray project from My Blessed Life, in which she uses Gorilla Glue to connect all the pieces of her tray. I knew that was the answer to my dilemma.

I found this pretty little tea cup and saucer set at my local Goodwill for less than $1. I just love anything that has flowers on it, plus the blue matches with the color of our house 🙂

To make the bird feeder, simply turn the cup on its side and glue it to the saucer, following the directions on the bottle of glue.

In order to hold the cup in position while it dried, I stuck our hammer inside the cup…it held it perfectly 🙂

After the cup is dry, it’s ready to hang! I used a blue string to hang it up on our deck, near my rocking chair, so that I can watch the birds come up to eat while I’m reading. Fill with any type of bird seed that you like.

So far, I’ve only seen the squirrels devouring the seed, but maybe I’ll get lucky and have a little family of birds visit one day soon 🙂

    This is such a cute bird feeder. We have two bird feeders and those darn squirrels get into both of them. I even have a squirrel feeder but they still get into the bird’s food. I hope you have birds eating out of the feeder soon.
