Hello, dear friends, and welcome back! Today, I’m stepping away from my haul to bring you a fun little spring craft! These pretty blue tea cups I found at the thrift store for 99¢ inspired me to make tea cup flower arrangements out of them!
As soon as I saw them, that idea came to mind and I put them right in my cart. I looked for matching saucers but no luck.
When I got home, I remembered I had the small ironstone creamer pitcher and sugar jar that I had picked up recently also and added them to the bunch!
Making Tea Cup Flower Arrangements
Before getting started, I rounded up all my random leftover floral stems as well as some that I bought months ago but never returned ( I am so bad about that!)…
I had a bunch leftover from my brother’s wedding that we hosted here as well…
I was determined to spend as little on this project as possible!
To begin, I filled all the containers with floral foam that I cut to fit snuggly with a steak knife:
Making them snug meant I didn’t need to glue them in place.
As you can see, I found a matching saucer for the creamer pitcher.
Next, I cut the stems down with cutting pliers and just popped them into the foam:
That was pretty much it!
Here is tea cup #1:
And look what I found!
They had been marked down twice at the thrift store and I scooped them up a few years ago.
I had six of these in my china cabinet, and they are a close-enough match!
I did attach them and I’ll share how in just a bit.
I alternated large white roses and smaller soft pink ones for this one…
Here is the other blue tea cup arrangement:
I glued all the saucers in place using E6000 glue:
I let them sit undisturbed for about 24 hours after gluing them together.
You could also add a small spoon for a fun addition…
I love the lamb’s ear…
Here is how the final arrangement turned out:
Except, I didn’t really “arrange” anything at all here.
I don’t have master floral arranging skills by any means, so these are all very simple!
Imagine what you could do if you did have skills!
I considered attaching the lid at an angle on the corner using the E6000 glue, but it’s cute just sitting to the side as well.
I used these florals in this fun cigar box wall hanging last year. (My mom claimed this and didn’t want purple.)
See how I married two pieces to make that HERE.
I worked with what I already had on hand, so these arrangements only cost me for the containers which were $6 for all four!
They would be cute anywhere you wanted to add a touch of spring.
I can see them on a bathroom vanity, on a kitchen window sill, or on a bedside table.
I hope you enjoyed this quick, crafty project today!
The brand new reformulated glazes and a brand new Fresh & Clean scented Big Mama’s Butta are now available in my shop! The Butta smells SO good!!
I’ll be sharing what I did with these frames on Tuesday:
UPDATE: No need to wait…see what I did with them HERE right now!
Have a wonderful weekend!
