Garden/ Teacup Bird Feeder

Have some cracked or chipped tea cups that you simply cannot part with but don't know what to do with them?
We did. Some just too pretty and too sentimental to toss.
So, we finally got around to making our teacup bird feeder we have had on the "to do" list for sometime now.

These teacups were wedding gifts and through use, they got a couple chips and surface cracks. We could hardly bring ourselves to toss them out, and saw where someone made a garden bird feeder from theirs.

We used two tea cups, one saucer, epoxy for ceramics/china and a copper pipe.

First, we attached the two teacups together and once dry we attached the cups to the saucer. than we attached the piece of copper pipe to the saucer. make sure you let each step in the process cure or dry before moving on.

We placed the bird feeder into a flower planter and added a few rocks for extra support and we thought they looked nice too.

Colorful wild bird seed was added to the feeder. The saucer can also be used to hold water instead of seed. We also thought at some point we might add a spoon to the saucer for the birds to stand on.

                  Now we just need to wait for the birds to come!

The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the LORD's favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn...
Isiah 61:1-2
