10 Ways to Upcycle Vintage Teacups
Teacups are way too cute to spend so much time hiding in the cupboard or in a box in the attic. Let’s break open the boxes and find ways to display those vintage teacups for all to see. If you don’t already have some at home, scope out the garage sales or thrift stores near you to pick some up. Let’s get upcycling!
2. Teacup Cake Topper: Here you have it — a clever way to decorate a cake without having any frosting skills. Just slap on a little frosting and top it with a teacup vase of your favorite flowers on top! (via The Ardent Sparrow)
6. Teacup Wine Glasses: Let your guests decide what they want to fill it with. Wine or tea? We’re going with wine, but do as you please. And get the full tutorial over at Apartment Therapy. (via The Bride’s Tree)
10. Teacup Bangles ($47): Alright. We couldn’t dig up the tutorial for these teacup bangles, but we also just couldn’t ignore them. Maybe the steps are similar to how you turn wine bottles into tumblers? If you figure out how to DIY them yourself, send us a note and let us know how you hacked it!
