You’ll need a plate, tea cup (or any glass that will be able to hold bird food), ½ inch copper cap, ½ inch copper rod or wooden dowel cut to desired length, sand paper & permanent glue. I like to use Epoxy or E600.
Sand the bottom of plate where you will be gluing the copper cap. Sand the top of the plate where you will be attaching the cup. Sand the bottom of the cup as well. Its important to get a good bond & sanding will help ruff up the surface to assure this.
Glue the cup in the middle of the plate. Allow to sit for a few minutes.
. Then carefully flip over & glue the copper cap in place.
Now fill with food & wait for the birds!
These types of feeders need to be filled more often. But the bonus is how pretty they look in the garden. Here’s one I made from a tea pot I found.
I filled the whole tea pot with food. Its so cute to watch them stick their little heads in there!
I’m going to be sneaky and try to get a few shots of the little finches that have been stoping for a snack through out the day. Stay tuned : )
