DIY SHARPIE MUG BIRD FEEDER CRAFT
I have always been drawn to all of the beautiful mugs on Pinterest decorated by Sharpie Markers! So when I saw this particular bird feeder pin from Craft Create Cook, I knew I wanted to try it for Week 23 of the Pinterest Challenge. I was able to use white stoneware plates and mugs from Dollar Tree to make this a very inexpensive project.

Here are the supplies I used to complete the Sharpie Mug Bird Feeders:
First I decorated the plates and mugs with the Sharpie Markers. This was so much fun! You could let kids of all ages doodle and draw on these cups and it would be so cute. We were making our bird feeders for an End of Year Teacher Gift. I chose to draw out the quote “It Takes a Big Heart to Teach Little Minds” on our plates.
Once I had the plates and mugs decorated, I used the E6000 Craft Adhesive to attach the mug to the plate. Then I placed a butter knife on each side of the mug to hold it in place. This needs to dry for about 24 hours.
After 24 hours I was ready to test out these bird feeders. I tied a piece of ribbon through the mug handle so that it can be hung outside. Then I added some bird seed. I was very excited by how cute these bird feeders turned out!
This is such an easy and inexpensive craft! It would be the perfect craft to do this summer when you have some down time with the kiddos. Plus it will be so much fun watching the birds come to enjoy the bird seed on their own decorated bird feeder!
