Remember the song in Mary Poppins about feeding the birds? That song was almost an endless loop in my head as I made this teacup bird feeder. Mostly because I love Julie Andrews, but also birds are just so relaxing to watch. While a bag of bird feed will definitely cost you more than tuppence, this project is still super cheap and super simple to make with only a few supplies and a couple of minutes of hands-on crafting time.
DIY TEACUP BIRD FEEDER
- teacup and saucer
- painter’s tape
- paper plate + wooden craft stick (for epoxy)
- jute twine
- bird seed
Step 1: Make sure the teacup and saucer are clean. Put the cup on its side, then use painter’s tape to hold it in place.
Step 2: Mix up a small amount of epoxy on a paper plate using a wooden craft stick, about a teaspoon (just do it by eye.)
Step 3: Tilt up the cup where it meets the plate and apply the epoxy, then carefully put the cup back in place to secure it. Hold for about 30 seconds. Let dry for 2 hours (or according to directions.)
Step 4: Using jute twine, hang the bird feeder by the handle of the teacup.
Step 5: Fill cup and saucer with bird feed.
Step 6: Enjoy watching the birds!
