Teacup Birdfeeder



You will need the following:

You won't really need a hatchet (my hsb wanted to use it cuz it's new)

2 part epoxy

dowel

teacup and saucer

spray paint

Make a point on one end of the dowel:


When that doesn't work (overkill) you can whittle it:


Spray it whatever color you chose:


Mix the epoxy as per the pkg instructions:




Apply to the cup

and set in the center of the saucer:


Apply epoxy to the bottom of the saucer once the cup and saucer has set up:




Allow to set up. Once the epoxy has set up you can insert it inot the ground and fill with birdseed

  17. I make those too and sell them. Here is another way to do the pipe part. I buy copper end caps in the plumbing section and glue them to the bottom of the cup and saucer then buy copper pipe in a long section (cheaper and can cut many pieces) then you can put it right on the cap. The good part about this way is when winter comes and you want to store the teacup so it won't crack you can take the pipe out and it is easier to put away.
    I have also used platters, gravy boats, and bowls - nice bird baths..enjoy
