I bought a couple tea cups from my local thrift store the other day for .50 each. They're so sweet and delicate, I just knew I could make something fun out of them.
I spray painted them white, tucked in bottle brush trees and cut out vintage images from Lisa's Altered Art. I used the Black Ice Brooch for the "Fancy Pants" tea cup and the Delicate and Delightful Chain for the "Think Happy Thoughts" tea cup. I finished them up by tying ribbon around the handle.
I thought they turned out quite sweet. :)
