I have a weakness for cute teacups- especially when I can find one with a matching saucer.
I never drink out of them as I am not fond of tea. They simply aren't big enough for my Diet Coke. Nevertheless, I have a small collection sitting in a cabinet.
I think if I had a daughter, we would have regular tea parties.
But I don't.
I have two rough and tumble boys who cannot be convinced to do any such thing:)
So, while browsing an awesome garage sale recently (I've been to this lady's garage sale before and she is the most awesome garage sale-er that I have ever seen! She has great stuff and actually sets it out nicely and sets up vignettes!), I found a beautiful teacup and saucer with little red flowers. I knew just what to do with them. . .
I turned them into a candle holder.
It was so easy!
If you'd like to make one, all you need is:
short pillar candle or small cloche
Apply E-6000 glue to the bottom rim of the teacup.
With the saucer upside down, place the teacup glue-side down in the center of the saucer bottom.
Let it dry for 24hours.
You may want to place a stack of books on top- just make sure when you don't bump the cup and mess up the alignment.
Then you can either add a cloche
or a small candle.
This would make a great gift for a friend or would be cute for party decor.
If you like this project, take a look at these other projects using little China plates.
I used them as frames.

I made some into a wreath.

Thanks for stopping by and God bless.
Do not forsake me, O Lord;
O my God, be not far from me!
