I have an obsession with vintage teacups. Whenever I see one that catches my eye at a yard sale or second hand store, I’ll snatch it up if it’s a good price.
Occasionally, my girls and I will have a tea party with them, but mostly they just sit in my cupboard looking pretty. Why not put them to good use?
Last year I made teacup bird feeders to give to my kids’ teachers. They were a big hit! I made a few for myself and the birds loved ’em. With earth day just around the corner, I figured I’d use a few of my teacups to create some eco-friendly DIY favors.
The herbs in my garden are exploding with life – why not create share the wealth with DIY herbs in a teacup.
They’re super-easy to make and inexpensive! A unique wedding favor – also perfect for Mother’s Day, don’t you think?
