  • a bud vase or two
  • a cup and saucer and/or a shallow cereal bowl (I bought the vases and china at my local thrift store for less than $4.)
  • 36″ long x 3/4″ diameter dowels
  • clear caulk

Step 1: To make the saucer feeder, apply caulk to the saucer and position cup over it.

Step 2: Apply caulk to the bottom of vase and position saucer/cup assembly over it. (If making the saucer type, just skip to step 2.)
