tea light

So I'm sure by now everyone has seen the brilliant craft of gluing plates or bowls to candlesticks and magically creating a beautiful serving piece. But this by far is my favorite!

Teacups + candlesticks = happy time

I found these teacups and candlesticks at a thrift store and thought they would be perfect for a little votive candle or to hold jewelry!

This one is so Anthropologie! I originally made it to sell on Etsy but I'm not sure that I can part with it!

This one is actually a birthday present for my grandmother! When I saw this teacup I immediately thought of her! It will look perfect in her bedroom!

If you want to make these yourself I suggest using Gorilla Glue Epoxy. I can't wait to make more!

Join  us Saturdays at tatertotsandjello.com for the weekend wrap up     party!
