I admit it. I am a magazine hoarder. I have them stacked in piles, and lined up on the bookshelf. I have great ambitions to tear out the pages of the things I think I will make, plant, or cook. I’ve picked up a few vintage teacups on my trips to the thrift store, so when I passed by the Country Woman Magazine at the grocery store the other day, I was drawn to the little teacups on the front cover. The teacups were filled with small vintage animals, houses, and ornaments creating a miniature garden in a teacup. I had the perfect idea for my teacups. Being a gardener, (and a lover of gnomes), I was ready to start my teacup crafting!
I gathered all my materials, and sat down to put my teacup together. I had a few fairy garden pieces left over from another project, a little garden gnome,moss and a box of Christmas snow. Starting with the green cup, I first filled it in with a crumpled up plastic bag as the base.
I placed my gnome and red berries in the teacup, and anchored it down with the moss. A miniature tree completed this cup.
This little teacup is one of my favorites and I chose a winter garden theme for it. A birdbath with birds, birdhouse, trees and snow complete the theme.
These little teacups can be used all winter long to brighten your home. So take a look through your stash (I know you have one), and make your own teacup craft. You are only limited by your imagination.
