"To Do" "Ta Da" Tuesday
Here is a craft that combines three things I really love: tea cups, flowers, and pretty ribbon! This took me about 45 min. to put together last night. Once again, everything was bought very, very cheaply and the tea cup I already had. As you know from my blog, Miss Bonnie has quite a collection of tea cups. She has always said that when she gets married she would like to have a bridesmaids tea using all her different cups. To take it one step further she would like to make each girl a topiary using some of her favorite tea cups. How pretty that would look at each girls place setting and I think it would make a wonderful "thank you" gift!
You will need the following materials: tea cup, saucer is optional (I showed my with a paper doiley!) small bunches of flowers (different colors but should be complimentary) 2 styrofoam balls (3") complimentary ribbon, wire for securing ribbon, green moss, and a green stem that has been snipped off of one of the bunches of flowers. You will need your glue gun for this project. See below post for step-by-step directions.
