Every spring, I love putting out a bird feeder to welcome back our winged friends after their long flight south for the winter.

I’ve seen my fair share of incredible and elaborate birdhouses before, but bird feeders tend to be on the more boring or straightforward side — that is, until now.

In this exclusive video, you’ll see how to make a one-of-a-kind bird feeder for your backyard, using a teacup!



  1. Attach teacup on its side to saucer using Liquid Nails.
  2. Let dry completely.
  3. Tie a twine loop through teacup handle.
  4. Hang in your backyard.
  5. Fill with birdseed and wait for birds to enjoy!

In all my years of backyard bird-feeding, I never thought to try something like this.

And this is a perfect project for upcycling old or leftover china that you just don’t seem to use anymore.

The steps are so easy, and the results are absolutely adorable. I may even try to make one of these with my nieces and nephews.

Watch the video below to see this extremely simple DIY idea in process. Then, let us know if you’ll be giving it a try yourself in the comments.
