~* Teapot Birds Nest *~

A month or so ago, I saw a picture on a friends Facebook feed that was soooo adorable. The pictures was of a Teapot Birds Nest by Bow Boutique. I didn't want to spring for the $27 in British pounds, which is about $42 American dollars.


I thought it was adorable and thought if I ever came across a teapot that would work, that I would try to make one myself. It is a great way to recycle and would make a Fabulous gift! Fast forward 2 days later, I was out in one of my Thrifting adventures when I spied this out of the corner of my eye!!

I was SUPER excited, I ran walked over and picked it up. It did not have a price tag on it and I was hoping that it would not be more than $5.00. I carried it around with me while I finished my shopping. I was very happy when the cashier said it was only $2.00!!!  SCORE!!!

Last weekend we went up to my Uncles house to spend some time with family that was here from out of state. I knew that my Uncle would have ALL of the tools I needed to make the pot. I had decided to make it for my Aunt and Uncle. They love nature and have many different feeders and bird dwellings. I knew it would be perfect for their yard.

My Uncle and I started working on it on Saturday afternoon.  I found some wood that I could use for the base and back laying around my Uncles yard. The process was relatively quick and painless. No injuries or broke pieces!

Here it is on the work bench. We went off to drink as the glue dried. I checked on it often to make sure none of the kids or my Aunt had messed with it. With 10 kids around that weekend, I was sure someone would want to touch it and move it around. Luckily, everyone stayed away from it.


And here is the finished product.  It was really great spending time with my Uncle working on the project. We have decided that we will make more, as soon as I am able to find Score more teapots. We figured out alot of things we could do to the next ones to improve the aesthetics of the Bird Next. 


I am especially happy that this only cost me $2.00!! That is a savings of over $40!!


Perhaps you will come across a teapot and try it for yourself or as a gift for someone too!!
