Tea Cup Bird Feeder Tutorial

I've been making these Tea Cup Bird Feeders for years and thought you might like to make one too! You know now that spring is here and all. The Birdies just might like this. Find the complete tutorial on the site HERE.

I absolutely LOVE this idea! How clever! Did you just use a regular tea cup? (In the pictures, it looks rather large.)
I think we're going to make this a spring homeschool craft project. We have teacups for a tea we attended and we really aren't tea drinkers!

These are adorable and so clever. I've never seen anything like them.

Shelley said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

I've seen these alot, but never knew how to make one. Thanks so much for sharing your directions! I have a teacup that will be perfect :)

Cap Creations said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

TOSHeidi - Yes, the cup in the tutorial is really large. I picked it up at a thrift shop. You can pretty much use any size cup and saucer.

Thank you so much for posting these instructions. I've been looking for a birdfeeder and had not spotted one as cute as this.

Looks like a nice project for the weekend.

I LOVE this idea, never seen it before, I so want to make one for my front yard that I keep 'prettying' up :) Is that first tea cup and saucer one of those large plant pots? It looks huge next to your son's hands?

I just found your blog through your guest posting on "Little Birdie Secrets". Thank you so much for this wonderful idea! I'm definitely going to try it. One question... do you fill the inside of the cup with anything?

Roberta said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Just found you through Jess and "How About Orange" and really like your blog ;D My Dad made these bird feeders years ago (he passed five years ago now) and this just brought back sweet memories. I'll have to make one for Father's Day in his memory...thanks again :}

dbunk902 said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Saw the post on my FB through my sisters posting and hopped on over to check it out. Reminds us both of our father who passed 5 years ago. Beautiful!

I really like this tutorial, but could you please not have music playing? Or at least prominently display the STOP button? I was really interested in this post until your music comandeered my speakers. (I'm still interested, and I thought this is an awesome idea, but the music makes me not want to come back to this site.)

PuppyLovePrincess said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

these are so cute! i'll be posting about them on my blog (w/credits and links.) thanks so much for sharing!

Hi -
I just love love love this bird feeder. My sister just moved into a new home and is a huge birdwatcher. I am going to make her one of these for her birthday. So clever.
My best- Diane

Cap Creations said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Glad you're all liking this!

I'd love to see yours if you make them! Come let me know if you post yours.

Becky@whatslifewithoutwhimsy said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

I like the the idea of adding the spoon! thats cute! I glue the cap on and just pull the whole thing at the end of the season the tails of dogs (both mine and neighborhood dogs) would knock them off the pipe otherwise, i learned that the hard way!

Debbie said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Quite a while back I saw your tutorial on this and have loved the idea ever since!! I was finally able to make some feeders, so I wanted to let you know that I posted a blog about it. I linked back to your site to give you credit for the idea. I would love for you to stop over and see my version of your idea and let me know what you think.

I just made 2 of these for end of year preschool teacher gifts...I was shocked when I went to Home Depot and found out how much the copper piping is...So instead I opted for the precut sections of 1/2 inch PVC piping with the flat topped 3/4 pvc cap...got some rustoleum spray paint in metallic copper and is labeled for "everything" plastic, metal...worked like a charm...saves money
