T This 30-minute bird feeder is a clever dou­ble up­cy­cle that's quick and cheap to make. The tea cup and saucer were an on­line steal at 50p, and the bud vase base cost just £1 from a char­ity shop. Look for tea sets with hair­line cracks or chips to add to the vin­tage feel, plus they are much cheaper to buy than ones in mint con­di­tion. Gar­den gifts are pop­u­lar sell­ers and this un­usual fea­ture will be a real talk­ing point.

How to make the tea cup bird feeder

Give the cup, saucer and bud vase a good wash in hot soapy wa­ter to re­move any residue and dry thor­oughly.
