Birds consume thousands of insects. This is especially true in the spring – when they’re feeding their young. This makes them excellent for keeping pest populations under control.
Seed-eating birds such as finches and sparrows also contribute to a healthy garden. They eat the seeds that otherwise grow into pesky weeds.
Want to invite birds into your yard to bring more life to your beautiful garden? Do this repurposing idea and they will surely love visiting your backyard!
Teacups can be found virtually anywhere and very cheap ones are not hard to find. Some of us even have so many stored away in our homes that we don’t get to use all of them!
There are also lots of other materials already in your house which you can use to make a teacup bird feeder for your garden. Extra tablespoons, excess rods and ropes or old table legs are just some items that can come in handy. You can also use an old chandelier to make several bird feeders!
Take a look at 12 more examples below and be inspired to do this creative project!
- Teacups and Saucers
- Wine Bottles or Floral Vases
- Gorilla Super Glue
- Wooden Dowel (1/2′ or smaller depending on the hole)
- Chain or Rope
