Tea is For the Birds


My Friend Krys made me this tea cup bird feeder. She glued the teacup to the saucer with Loctite waterproof outdoor glue. She glued a small wood piece with a hole for a dowel. It comes of of the dowel for draining the water out. We talked about drilling drainage holes with a dremel drillbit but not sure if the teacup would break. I think the crowning touch is the tea spoon. Since this is pretty close to the ground , and we wouldn't see under it, we are thinking even a short section of white  PVC pipe would make a more secure dowel top.

We did end up gluing PVC pipe section and they work great. These don't have drainage holes so you may need to empty out water after a strong rain, so, don't glue it to the top of your dowel--
