Do you spend more time doing housework than you’d like to? Yep, me too. Not a fan. But next to the sink in my kitchen is a little windowsill that gets a bit of light, and I thought to myself what would be a simple way to make the most of what’s around me and turn this forgotten little space into a source of brightness. I was asked by Twinings to share how I experience the most from my day and I thought what could be better than popping a little DIY teacup planter on there to spread a bit of happiness! I love DIY teacup crafts as they’re a great way to use up a bit of vintage crockery and they remind me to put the kettle on when I need a bit of me time!
I seem to have cultivated a mild addiction recently to buying vintage teacups. Not a bad thing but I only normally drink tea by the half pint! As a result I’ve rather got myself into trying some DIY teacup craft ideas and a friend suggested that it might be fun to try and make a pincushion with one so this teacup pincushion tutorial is the result! Sadly, it does mean I can no longer drink tea from this cup but at least it means I have an excuse to have it lying around and hopefully to go and buy more vintage teacups? Here’s hoping!
As someone who has a mild addiction to collecting pretty vintage things I’ve found myself with quite a few vintage teacups in the house! As such I’m a big fan of sharing DIY teacup craft ideas here on the blog and these DIY teacup candles are relatively simple to make! Once you’ve got the hang of it you’ll want to make loads and they make great handmade gifts too!
