Projects to make: more bags...and garden art

I was cruising the net trying to find out how to make a bird feeder from a vintage glass pop bottle (I saw one at the Design District), and came upon this amazing site of projects for kids. Also, a pincushion from a tuna fish can!
But back to the birds. Garden art ideas:
Ooh, and I really want to make some tea cups on a pole--they can be bird feeders or votive holders. Would look amazing lining a garden path.
Cute gift idea: make a tea cup pin cushion. I think I might use wool or something instead of a foam ball.

Hi Barb, thanks for those links, I could use some ideas for my kids at work. I think the tea pot pin cushion is adorable. Funny, I was cleaning out my corner of the garage and I came across a souvineer teacup of Prince Charles and Lady Di, I want to throw it out. I don't think it's a collector's item, but my in-laws sent it for me back in the day. I still have it rolling around the house. Maybe I'll make a pin cushion out of it!
