DIY Teacup bird feeder

I have been collecting teacups for a couple years-
 I don't drink tea or have a collection on display-
I craft with them!

You can find antique teacups at any thrift stores-

They provide the perfect vintage element to home decor creations-

I've made bird nest displays in them,


  


 Christmas ornaments 




and now I'm upcycling them as bird feeders-

I saw this idea on Pinterest (I really should work for them!)
at Budget Savvy Diva blog-

Simple to make but so cute in a garden!

Here are the steps I took-

1. Goodwill hunting

2. wash and dry completely

3. decide on the combination of cup and saucer

4.  Use E6000 to attach the teacup to saucer-
some work better than others due the the depth of saucer and shape of teacup so mix 'em up

4.  Let dry for 24 hours



I am dabbling with different ways to hang them.  I found some small white chain on my Goodwill hunting and I have some white hooks I've accumulated.  But, think outside the box- Pinterest has lots of cool ides- wire twisted into curliques, wire with beads, lucite wreath hangers that hang over doors-



Cute as a button!
Have some fun with it!

Take care, gotta fly-
