In this post you’ll learn to make an easy teacup birdfeeder to enhance your garden. With Sugru Moldable Glue by tesa almost any project requiring glue is possible. Have you ever heard of moldable glue before? I’ve been crafting for decades and never knew such a glue even existed. I’m blown away by the possibilities and more on that later. For now, let’s get right into this simple craft for your garden.
This is a paid post in behalf of Sugru, but the opinions expressed here are my own.
I’m in my 15th year of blogging, so you may have seen some of my previous crafts using teacups. There is just something about vintage china that I love. My husband’s aunt had gifted me with a collection of vintage teacups years ago, so I decided to use several in this easy teacup birdfeeder post. Sort of a tribute to her and to my own love of the garden, so let’s get started!
Easy Teacup Birdfeeder With Sugru Moldable Glue – DIY
First you’ll need to get some Sugru below.

Sugru bonds to almost anything and hardens overnight, turning into a strong flexible and bondable rubber. It’s almost like a cross pollination between Super Glue and Play Doh.
It’s so easy to make this project once you have your Sugru. It comes in a variety of colors and you can mix them to create your own! I used red for the easy teacup birdfeeder project because it wouldn’t show and it was the first packet that I grabbed!
- Sugru comes in 10 different colors which can be mixed to make any shade you like
- Sugru is easily removable with a sharp knife and dry tissue paper
- You can find a range of different repair products at Sugru.com – for your home, garden and clothes.
You’ll also need some monofilament fishing line to hang the easy teacup birdfeeder in your garden. Fishing line works well when creating a squirrel proof bird feeder. Trial and error taught me this trick and the hack works!
Using The Sugru Moldable Glue
I opened my packet of Sugru and molded it between my fingers to get the shape that was needed.
Next I decided how to position the cup to the saucer to create the shape shown below. I intended on hanging this easy teacup birdfeeder so the cup handle would need to be at the top.
I placed the Sugru on the cup and positioned it against the saucer. It stays in place right away and if you need to move it you have around 30 minutes before it starts to set up. Allow to dry overnight or for 24 hours.
After 24 hours I tied some monofilament fishing line onto the handle of the teacup. Then I hung the tea cup from a branch and filled with wild birdseed.
I made a few of these easy teacup birdfeeder pieces and now the birds are enjoying them!
Additionally I took a piece of rebar that I had in my garage and used the Sugru moldable glue to create a standing teacup garden bird feeder.
You’ve probably seen this type of feeder before, but the Sugru makes it so much easier to make. Sugru moldable glue adheres to just about anything!
Sugru also has other products in their lineup and I received this set of garden shears.
They are perfect for spring gardening and floral arranging and I know that I’ll get a lot of use out of them! We have lots of flowers in bloom in our tropical Florida garden right now!
With my stash of tea cups out I used them to create an impromptu garden tablescape. With birds being on my mind the vintage bird teacups seemed perfect. I filled the tea cups with florals and berries from the garden.
