Last night was WI night for Becksie. As usual it was much fun and this month we made some lovely crafts using old teacups.
The teacup craft Becksie chose was such a simple idea but looks delightful so……… we thought we’d share our make with you all. So……. here goes:
Take a teacup
Take some sand paper and sand the side opposite the handle – sand until the glaze has come off
Do the same with the saucer
Super glue the sanded bit of the cup to the sanded bit of the saucer as far back as the cup will allow (this is for balance). You may need to hold it in a place for a while but be patient it will stick
Take some birdseed……..
Mix with lard (one cupfull needs about half a block of lard). Spoon into the cup and smooth the surface. Add some peanuts to the saucer
Tie some ribbon on the handle and……….. hang in a tree!
Await the birds! Becksie made this for Granny Pugh as a little gift.
