Teacup Bird Feeders

Looks like its tea time doesn't it?
I am not one for tea, but it is craft time :)

I made these adorable teacup bird feeders last week.
They look so pretty in my garden :)

I went to the thrift store and picked up these pretty tea ups and matching saucers.
I was planning on making these years ago....Wayne and I looked all over for this E6000 adhesive when I planned on making these, so it was so nice to finally use it.
When using this adhesive, please use it outside, there are some pretty scary info on the packaging.

I then put the adhesive on the cups and then placed the cup on the saucer in the position I wanted.
It took longer than I thought it would to dry....so be patient.

Here is a video I did on the teacup bird feeders. :)
If you would rather watch it on my YouTube channel, just click on my name :)  "Tracy's Treasures24"

After making these, I ran back to the thrift store and picked up 2 more cups and saucers and made them up at the cottage for thank you gifts for a few of our neighbours.

I hope you all had a very creative day :)

  3. Very nice Tracy. Very creative & you make it look quite easy, except the glue & thanks for the warnings. Our local thrift store prices on tea cups/saucers is a little bit high for creating these feeders - I will wait for a sale at the thrift store in late August.

  4. diese idee ist ja grandios, liebe tracy...die vögel werden nun, wegen der goldtassen, ihr schönstes kleid anziehen...*lach*
