Enamelware Tea Cup Bird Feeder

6:25:00 AM

I love all the bird feeders made
with tea cups that I see on Pinterest....

they inspired me to create my own!

I created one today using a set of enamelware dishes I've been hanging onto.

I began by gluing the tea cup to the enamelware bowl using E6000 glue. 

On the bottom of the plate I used the piece of a lamp from my junk collection. I was looking for something that would glue to the bottom of the plate and then hold a stick.

I wanted the bird feeder to be able to stick into a flowerpot.

The lamp piece was the perfect solution.

The metal stick is removable for storage
and the bird feeder can be used in a pot
or hanging from a chain using the tea cup handle.

An adorable bird feeder using repurposed dishes and parts from my junk collection.

  1. What a cute idea! and I love that you used an old lamp base...I pinned this and also added it StumbleUpon as well.

    Great idea!

  2. This is great, Susan! I love how you positioned the cup. The lamp piece you used worked out great. I like that you can take it off the stick and put it away if needed and it gives a nice scroll decoration to it, too.

  3. I think I 'need" this....(love it)

  4. How cute!!!!!! It all came together perfectly. The lamp piece was genius to use. I may have to attempt to make one of these myself. :-)

    Have a wonderful week...

  5. I, also have seen so many cup birdfeeders, but yours has inspired me to try to make and use them myself! The pretty china ones I always see just seemed like the first hail storm or whatever would break them, but enamelware!!! Perfect! Thanks!
