DIY Tea Cup and Grapevine Wreath Container Décor

April 20, 2018
Looking for a sweet and easy DIY project?
This simple DIY Tea Cup and Grapevine Wreath Garden Container Décor can easily be made in just about  30 minutes.
In honor of loving the Earth (it is Earth Day.)
I also just love sharing a post with you that involves two of my favorite things; crafting and gardening!
This post is a quick one and I hope it will bring you some Spring crafting joy, as well as garden inspiration. 
I am even thinking this project would be fantastic for Mother's Day or a Bridal shower gift too.


Last year I made a similar DIY project when I participated in the Tea Cup Challenge. 
I used the teacup as a birdfeeder for that project and it was a hit on Hometalk, although many of the comments were wondering how I kept the squirrels off of the feeder!
Strangely enough I was never bothered with them.


This whimsical handmade garden décor project has two of my favorite items; a grapevine wreath and a porcelain tea cup.


Seems that whenever I am serenely strolling down a HomeGoods, or a T.J. Maxx isle I have creating on my mind.
I suppose the reason for this is because I really don't need another set of dishes, tea cups or coffee cups. 
However I can certainly justify purchasing china of any kind if I am going to be using for creating and gift giving too!


When I spied this adorable irregular shaped porcelain tea cup with rosettes on the handle, I immediately saw in my minds eye a garden décor project!
I secretly squealed in the aisle, and as quick as a wink I placed the tea cup set in my shopping cart.


But as with most handmade projects there is always room for learning, improvement and modifications.

So what I did learn from my previous project? I learned to love epoxy glue!
Epoxy glue tolerates heat and moisture extremely well and lasts and lasts.

I love this sweet and simple project, it is perfect for most size of garden containers and really dresses them up.
Thanks for crafting with me today!
