09. Plate and Bowl Bird feeder
You can make a beautiful birdfeeder from a saucer and a matching bowl – or a mismatched one if you prefer. You just have to drill a hole in the saucer and attach the two together. Ok, so it is a bit more complicated than that but not too complicated. This beautiful birdfeeder looks great and the saucer protects your birds from rain, sun and other weather elements, sort of like an umbrella.

11. Tea Cup Birdfeeder
A teacup and saucer can make a beautiful birdfeeder. If you have a spare set, you can create a very unique feeder by gluing the teacup to the saucer sideways. It makes it look as if the bird food has spilled out of the cup. This is an adorable feeder and with a ribbon or string, you can hang it anywhere that you want to see pretty little birds. Note that you do need glue that has really good holding power.
