Step 1

Firstly, get a metal spoon or fork and bend both the sides of it as shown below. (Tip: An easy way to bend the spoon/fork is to keep one tip of it at the door gap. Then gently close the door while holding the other tip and bending it in a 90 degree direction). Once you have passed this step, the rest is going to be easy!

Step 3

Let’s stick the other end of the spoon at the centre of the saucer. (The saucer shouldn’t be too small or else, the whole thing can fall down due to the weight of the cup. It happened with me the first time. lol! ) Again, use plenty of hot glue to stick it well.
