Make Your Own Coffee Mug Bird Feeder Directions:

Note: While this craft can easily be done using a tea cup and saucer, or coffee cup and saucer, for purposes of this tutorial I will use the words “mug” and “plate”. If you choose to use a tea cup or coffee cup, use that where I wrote mug, and use the saucer where I wrote plate.

• Wash and dry mug and plate with soap and water to remove any dust or debris.
• Be sure the mug and plate are completely dry before beginning this craft.

• On a flat surface, place your mug and plate and set two table knives onto the plate so that it holds up the mug as shown.
• This will help once you add the glue to keep the handle straight.

• Add glue to the mug in a line down the spine opposite from where the handle is located, and press firmly onto the plate.
• Line up your table knives to make sure the handle is in the center.
• Let set to dry according to the glue’s directions.
• Place on a table for one or two days to dry. Do not touch while drying.

• When the glue is set up and dry, add a piece of twine or string to the handle, and hang the bird feeder mug outside. Make sure you knot securely.
• You can hang the bird feeder mug in a tree, on a Shepard’s hook, a plant hook, etc. The placement is endless.
• Fill with birdseed.

• Since the birds will be eating the seed, it may be best if this is placed in an area where you can see the birds, but not interfere with them in any way. You also will want a bird feeder away from an area where you may have little ones walking through droppings, or picking up the seed to er, sample.

Notes:

• When searching for a mug and plate (or tea cup and saucer, or coffee cup and saucer) make sure you set them on top of each other and see how they will lay. Some mugs work better than others, have a flatter bottom, work well with the plate, etc. This is a good shape as you can see. The plate shown in this craft is 8″ in diameter and the cup was a standard coffee mug.

• Have a quite place ready to set your project for a day or two to allow it to completely set up and dry.

• This really is a very simple project. Use your cast-offs or inexpensive
