Did you catch the new season premiere of Downton Abbey last night? If you’re as obsessed as we are here, indulge your Anglophile tendencies with some adorable and appropriate vintage teacup crafts. These darling ideas are perfect for flea market finds and/or old teacups with minor chips and nicks in them. Finger sandwiches and tea cakes optional…though highly encouraged.
Here’s a bright idea: Turn a teacup into a pendant light! I can picture rereading Pride & Prejudice under one of these pretty bulbs. Head to Ideas to get the full DIY instructions.
If you’d prefer to kick it old-school, you can still shed some light on the subject with teacup candles. These stunners from Hey Gorgeous Events would also make cute favors for a wedding or tea party.
Proving once again that I am a total sucker for succulents, I had to share this teacup planter by Bonnie of A Golden Afternoon. I love genmaicha, but this creation brings a whole new meaning to the words “green tea”!
I first posted about these DIY teacup bird baths/bird feeders from Something Wonderful back in April of last year, but I enjoy them so much, I had to bring attention to them again. Try this idea and come springtime, I bet your yard will be a hotspot for all sorts of winged wonders.
