DIY Teacup Bird Feeder

Even though it is nearly spring (at least in my head) it keeps on snowing every now and then. And since we have such nice Teacup Bird Feeders for the large birds, and a Teapot Birdhouse, we needed something for the little birds. So, I went to the second hand store and bought this teacup and saucer for only 50 cents.

Then I used the Dremel with a diamond bit to drill two holes in both the cup and saucer. I made two holes so I would not have to stick both parts together, but could tie them with a bit of wire. Make sure you have enough wire to make loops on both sides to hang the feeder and the food. Use pliers to pull the wire tight.
