Broken Teacup Planter


What happens when guests come over and you prepare the best food for them, and serve it in your best china and hen, all of a sudden, the noise of something shattering startles you. Their exceptionally mischievous child breaks your most beautiful teacup, and, even though you want to smack him on the head, all you can do is smile and tell him it’s no problem.

So, that’s the story behind this broken cup. I could either throw it away or make something out of it and the first thing that came to my mind was making a candle with it. The problem with this idea was the multitude of candles that I already have. My roommate and I love going to the thrift shops together and every time we see something pretty, but don’t really know what it is, we decide to call it a candle holder and buy it!


Well, that left me with one other option- making the broken teacup a planter. So, I went into the garden and found these beautiful flowers growing in a corner. They were small and I easily managed to transfer them into the teacup and here they are now.


Isn’t it looking adorable!


I hope you find this post helpful in case your favorite cup is ever broken.

Have fun crafting!Sign
