You will need:
- 1 - 1/2 inch PVC tubing 40 inches long cut into 10 inch lengths.
- 1/2 inch end cap PVC
- a saucer
- a tea cup or a coffee cup
- glue (I use Gorilla glue)
- Turn tea cup upside down. Run glue around the bottom. Attach the saucer.
- Then glue the closed end of cap to the middle bottom of the saucer.
- This should set for several hours.
- Attach the end piece to the tubing and stick in the ground.
- Add bird seed and watch the birds come.

I have tried several glues to stick a cup to its saucer. All of them are supposedly suitable for sticking ceramic, but none seem to work. Any suggestions?

To glue cup to saucer use a contact cement. Will never come apart.

Thanks for the suggestions. However I forgot to mention that I am in the UK so I don't know US brand names. If anyone could tell me the type of glue these are it would be helpful
