This easy teacup bird feeder makes a fun kids project and will save you tons of money over store bought feeders!
It’s Spring, the snow has melted and the birds are hungrier than ever after a long Winter. We’ve had to add multiple bird (and squirrel!) feeding stations throughout the yard. One of our favorite ways to do that is with this easy teacup bird feeder. Why? Because it’s super cute, the kids can put it together and it’s CHEAP! You can go to the second-hand store or dollar store and get the cup and plate for the project. The kids love picking them out and I don’t have to worry about it getting too spendy!
- Matching Teacup and Plate

Hanging Bird Feeder
Wipe down and remove any stickers that may be on your cup and plate.
Set your cup on its side on top of the plate, handle sticking straight up and see how it fits the flattest and best on the plate.
Apply a thick strip of E6000 glue on the part of the cup that will be sitting on the plate. Be sure the strip goes the entire length of the cup.
Place the cup on the plate, glue side down. Set something heavier inside the cup to keep it in place and be sure the cup is centered.
Leave the cup to sit overnight for best drying results.
Tie your piece of twine onto the handle of the cup.
Place bird seen inside, hang in a tree, and enjoy!
Isn’t it adorable! I really love this bright blue color because it’s looks so nice hanging in the yard and it attracts the birds as well!
Have fun making it and please share your photos with us on Facebook!
Make sure you “pin it” to save it for later!
These look beautiful! Yum!
