Can you believe this is my first bird feeder project? I often see upcycled bird feeders on Pinterest and love all the creative ideas.
How to make a DIY bird feeder using vintage teacups and an iron candle holder?
The candle holder was my inspiration piece. It is made out of iron and has pretty teardrop crystals. The candle holder came from my favorite junk shop, and the cost was $2, so it was a deal.
These tea cups that have been sitting on a shelf in the workshop for ages. I bought them at the thrift store because I loved the design and the colors.
I decided to use one of the saucers and one of the tea cups to make the bird feeder. I glued the saucer to the top of the candle holder using my favorite Gorilla Glue.
I situated the tea cups so the handles are not directly over each other. One side of the tea cup has a colorful bouquet of flowers, and then around the rest of the rim are small yellow flowers.
Now I'm just waiting on the birds to show up. Surely they will. I've never had a bird feeder, so I don't know the deal. If you have the time please leave a comment before heading out on the tour.
