A nature lovers garden can never have too many nest boxes and this easy teapot to bird box will be a really unique gift! With the bird nest plans we will share together it couldn’t be easier.

This is a really easy project which fits all of the smallholder criteria of reusing and hand crafting so why not get stuck in this weekend?

teapot to bird box

 

You will need….

 

Length of wood no less than 800cm in length and wide enough to accommodate your teapot and lid.

a wood bit wide enough for a screw to get through.

teapot, used and bought at a charity shop is best for quirky and good value

the better the quality the easier it is to be accurate

pot of , following all the instructions for safe use!

tester pot of wood paint, usually less than £2 in all DIY stores

– if you care about right angles, but trust me the birds wont mind too much!

Stay safe whilst making this bird box

Start by placing your teapot on the wood with enough room above to drill the hole to hang it. Use the set square to mark out a straight line for where you be sawing. Then position yourself directly above where you intend to saw. Please be careful with fingers at this stage, and I tend to find the smaller the fingers the easier it is to get them confused with the wood. If you look on top of the line you have drawn it is much more likely that you will have a clean cut, this is because you can go nice and slowly and reposition as and when needed. Let the saw do the work and do not apply any pressure.

 

Cutting the wood for your bird box

You are hoping to get a nice clean cut and then you can rest the pot on this piece and leave the lid on the rest of the wood to mark out again. I like it when the spout touches the piece of wood which will become the bottom as this gives it a bit more stability when the glue is drying. The lid will become a place to pop seeds to try to entice the birds to make a nest in their new home. teapot to bird box

Time to get sticky

Once you have sawn your second piece of wood you can then glue them together, I really think reading the pot is a good idea as Gorilla glue will stick anything to anything, you included! This is then a good time for a cup of tea for yourself as it will take around 20 minutes to go off and an overnight stint to be solid. After this I then paint it the colour I want, as being more quirky is a good idea, and it helps to make it a unique gift!

Child friendly bit

Once the paint is dried you can then drill your hole to hang the teapot from, so once again place it on the wood to ensure you mark out with enough space. When using the drill be sure to gently squeeze as this will limit the splinters and create a neater finish.

You are now ready to glue the teapot to the wood, then wait a few hours before gluing the lid. This one is for a friend who is turning the big 50 and I wanted to give her something as special as her, but I chose a teapot with a rounded lid so had to also develop a unique was to hold it in place whilst the glue dried!

What could be a sweeter recycled birdbox? I love this as a fathers day gift!

If you have made your birdhouse, why not watch your birds nesting?

If you fancy attracting more birds to the garden, think about what you would like in a your natural habitat. Somewhere cosy to sleep, some food and some water. So for creating more food areas try a few luxury bug homes as they can produce a natural feeding area. I also love to watch my wildlife arrive and you could go far wrong than installing a

The one shown is a basic kit and very good for a family project.  If you want to up your game to a  this is a good place to start. You can then see if you enjoy the reasonably priced version and upgrade at a later date if needed.

Bird Box Position

Does it really matter where you site your bird box? Yes it does as you want to think of their home as your own. You wouldn’t like too much sun, or wet wind blowing in through your front door. So find somewhere 2-4 meters high. Without direct sunlight all day. So a bit of shade from another building or trees. Then ensure that it will allow for a clear flight path for any feathered friends.

 

Shopping list or ‘reusing what you have already got’ list

This is a fine wood saw and will last a long time if looked after, it makes a nice addition to any toolbox and you will be reusing this time and again.

Now this is the big investment piece for your toolbox, therefore think carefully before you purchase a low cost drill, quality will pay you back.

DIY Teapot Birdhouse

Do you have any teapots laying around that you no longer use? If so, you may want to check out this DIY teapot birdhouse.

Brown tea pot birdhouse hanging from tree

DIY Teapot Birdhouse

Even if you do not have any teapots on hand to make this teapot birdhouse, I don’t know about you, but I always see tons of them at thrift stores and yard sales for super cheap.

This birdhouse is very easy to make and is super cheap as it requires very little supplies, and you can pretty much just use what you have on hand and get creative with yours. You do not have to be the same as the one I made.

If you are looking for other birdhouses and feeders to make, here are a few to check out.

First off, here are the supplies you will need to make this DIY teapot birdhouse.

Supplies:

How To Make This DIY Birdhouse:

Take the fabric and cut out four small triangles. Small, but yet large enough that you can write one letter on.

Then take the marker and write letters to spell home on each of the four triangles. After that, you will hot glue those to the center of the 4-inch piece of string (I used craft/baker’s twine).

Now remove the lid from the top of the teapot. Then you can glue the string banner you just made draped over the hole to the top of the teapot birdhouse.

It is up to you, it can be centered like I did or you can place it more to the side if you want.

Now that you have it decorated, you can put the string in place to hang it.

Simply knot the two ends of the 12-inch string together. Then place it through the handle and run it back through itself so that it stays attached to the handle.

Then you can choose where you want to hang it and loop the string over a branch. Add a small handful of straw or grass in the pot after you have hung the teapot birdhouse.

Frequently Asked Questions For Teapot Birdhouse:

Q. Do you have to put a banner on the birdhouse?
A. No! If you like just the look of the teapot you have, feel free to hang it up as is.

Q. Should you block the hole of the spout so baby birds do not fall in and get stuck?
A. You can if you would like. Just be sure that if you do cover/plug it, you make sure you have some small drain holes in it. Birds make lots of liquid messes and it needs to be able to drain.

Note: this is not normally a step that is needed as birds will make their own nest inside the teapot that is safe for their babies. However, if you are worried about it, you can close it off as noted above.

Things we love: The Metal Teapot Birdhouse

We stumbled upon this at a gift fair just before Christmas: a little bird house fashioned from an old metal teapot.

It's not got a great deal to do with board games, but we thought 'got to have that for outside the office'... before we cracked and gave it as a Christmas gift to an enchanted bird-lover.

The spout provides drainage; an old spoon acts as a front step, and the flying prongs of a pair of forks hold those delicious fat balls. There are also a couple of abstract glass marble holders 'for bling' (as the maker explained to us.) Because all birds need a bit of bling, especially in the bleak winter months.

'The Maker' turned out to be a genial fellow called Tel Turnbull, a potter, artist and craftsman with all sorts of imaginative wares on his stall. We'd seen a porcelain one before, but never a metal teapot birdhouse, and there's always a warm feeling about the creation of something of minor wonder from an item that's so functional and everyday.

The artist had four or five more on his stall but - alas - that's the end of the line for the metal teapot birdhouse. Why? Because nobody uses metal teapots any more, he explained. Once they were ten-a-penny, bog standard things that he'd pick up by the dozen at boot sales. Now? The supply of metal teapots has dried up, and he'd found himself trawling Ebay for them when he should have been doing art and stuff. So that's it for the metal teapot birdhouses, unless you have a stash of old teapots lying around that you can send him?

Upcycle a teapot into a stylish bird feeder

Get yourself a bird’s-eye view of that little robin next time he’s in town with a bird feeder that’s a little closer to home. Upcycling expert Max McMurdo shares a great project idea using a teapot and Sugru Mouldable Glue to create a stylish addition to any kitchen or conservatory window.

Once it’s done, just stick the kettle on and let the feeding commence! 

Kit:

  • 3 single-use packs of Sugru 
  • Tea pot with lid (ceramic/vintage/charity shop find)
  • Tea strainer
  • Bird seed
  • Masking tape

You might also need pliers or vice grips

Step 1

Make a little bird roof by attaching the teapot lid at an open angle onto the teapot using half a single-use pack of Sugru. Then secure the lid in place with masking tape while the Sugru sets.

Step 2

Use the other half of the single-use pack of Sugru and one full pack to mould three cone points to the bottom of the teapot. To do this, roll the Sugru into a ball, press onto the base of the teapot and mould into a cone shape.

Step 3

Press the teapot slowly and firmly onto the window and use masking tape to keep in place while the Sugru sets. Always make sure the window is clean and dry.

Step 4

Bend the end of the tea strainer 3cm from the end, either by hand or using pliers / vice grips.

Step 5

Attach the tea strainer to the glass using your third pack of Sugru, just under the teapot so that the pot falls in line with the strainer. You want to allow enough room for a tiny bird to perch and eat comfortably. Then support in place with masking tape.

Step 6

Leave for 12-24 hours* before gently peeling off the masking tape and filling the teapot with bird seed. Sit back and enjoy the view.

*Depending on the thickness of the application, for load-bearing projects, allow up to 48 hours for Sugru to fully set.

Oh, and don’t forget to tweet about it. (We had to, sorry!)

DIY Vintage Teapot Bird Shelter with Feeder

Vintage teapots are probably one of not many kitchenware that can be found at literally any flea market around the world. After all, which culture doesn’t drink tea at all? They usually come in a broad variety of sizes, shapes, materials, colors, quality, conditions and prices.

From extravagant or whimsical, to simple and austere, there’s usually a teapot for every taste! And, exception made of rarities that can sell for hundreds (or even thousands), vintage teapots are generally pretty affordable. It is not uncommon to find a vintage porcelain teapot or ceramic teapot at the flea market, that sells for as low as a few dollars/pounds/euros.

However, if vintage teapots with floral decor are not your cup of tea (sorry, I could not resist the pun), you should know that they can serve a more practical purpose than just filling the bottom of your kitchen cupboard. Vintage teapots indeed make great bird shelters.

Each year when winter rolls around, most of us can’t help but think of our little feathered friends and their challenges to withstand the harshness of the outdoors during this season. Now, the good news is that there are a few easy and inexpensive tips to help birds escape cold and windy nights. Like for instance turning an old teapot, you have no use of, into a bird’s shelter.

Don’t you think they make wonderful additions to any backyard habitat?

We’ve put together this little DIY Vintage Teapot Bird Shelter with Feeder, which is a great autumn craft for homeschooling families, or a fun weekend activity for folks of all ages. Of course, you can customize your DIY Vintage Teapot Bird Shelter with Feeder by adding or removing some of its features.

In case you’re not too much of a DIY project person, you can alternatively purchase online a Vintage Teapot Bird Shelter with Feederor simply hang a vintage teapot furnished with some dried grass or dry wood shavings.

When you create your Vintage Teapot Bird Shelter, keep in mind that the diameter of the opening in your bird shelter will determine what kind of avian visitors you get. Our DIY project is ideal for a Sparrow or a Blue Tit.

What You Will Need To Build Your Vintage Teapot Bird Shelter

  • A vintage teapot with its lid (ideally a lid with a knob on top).
  • Some wooden planks or boards.
  • One 8 cm long wooden stick (for the bird perch).
  • Wood protector.
  • A lead sheet (to build the peak sheltering the entry to the teapot).
  • Some tools (an electric jigsaw, a drilling machine) and supplies (screws, wood protector, paint)

This is the Vintage Teapot Bird Shelter with Feeder model we drew our inspiration from, for this DIY tutorial

vintage-teapot-birdnest

Instructions To Build Your Vintage Teapot Bird Shelter

Step 1: Cutting

  • Cut a35 x 9 cm wooden board which will serve as the frame to hold the teapot vertically.
  • Cut a 19 x 9 cm wooden board that will hold the birds’ feeder horizontally (in this case, the teapot’s lid will be used as a feeder dish).
  • Optional: Cut or sand the corners of both boards, to give them a rounded shape. Since the smaller board must be later fixed to the longer board, keep one of its ends straight (not rounded).
  • Cut a rounded wooden panel the width of the teapot lid, that will be used to cover the teapot’s opening. Cut a hole at the center of the rounded wooden panel (3 cm to 4 cm wide – check this Birdhouse Hole Size Chart), so the birds can freely get in/out. Finally, drill a hole 1 cm below the opening you made in the rounded panel, to accommodate a perch for the birds.
  • To build the peak sheltering the entry to the teapot, take the lead sheet and cut a circle of the same diameter as the rounded wooden panel covering the teapot’s opening. Cut the circle in two halves, and curve it a bit so it fits the shape of the rounded wooden panel you just cut.

Step 2: Drilling

  • Drill a hole, of the same width as the lid knob, at the other end of the 19 x 9 cm board: that way, when inserted into the hole, the lid won’t fall accidentally. Also, an easy to remove lid knob makes the feeder easier to clean. Drill another hole to accommodate the muzzle of the teapot, when the frame will be mounted (see 9. below)
  • Drill two holes in the 35 x 9 cm board (5 cm from each end of the board), so the frame can be later fixed on a supporting structure like a building, sheltered shed, tree or wall.

Step 3: Treating

  • Optional: Paint the boards and the rounded wooden panel in the color of your choice. Leave the boards to dry.
  • Treat the wooden boards with a wood protector like a cream wood stain, which is weather and ultraviolet/UV resistant.
  • Leave the boards to dry at least overnight (ideally 48 hours).

Step 4: Assembling

  • Drill the Teapot to the longest board (35 x 9 cm), and make sure it is held in place securely.
  • Screw the other board (19 x 9 cm) perpendicular to the board holding the teapot. If you haven’t done it yet (see 3.), drill a hole to accommodate the muzzle of the teapot, in the board.
  • Fix the lead peak you cut in Step 1, to the rounded wooden panel (you can screw or glue it).

Step 5: Final Touch

  • Furnish the bottom of your birdhouses with some dried grass or dry wood shavings. Don’t use sawdust, however, as it can retain moisture once wet, which does not help the birds keep warm. Here are a few more tips on How to Help Birds in Bad Weather.
  • Hang the frame to a supporting structure like a building, sheltered shed, tree or wall. Check the Birdhouse Hole Size Chart to determine what the ideal height is, based on your local bird species.
  • Take a few steps back, and enjoy the result! Pat yourself on the back.
  • Cast your new feathered friend on BirdsTV (coming soon)

Once again, this tutorial is only meant to provide some guidance based on a particular model of Teapot Bird Shelter. You can of course customize your Vintage Teapot Bird Shelter with Feeder by adding or removing some features.
