Tiny Painted Teacups and Saucers

Tiny Painted Teacups and Saucers

Tiny Painted Teacups and Saucers are adorable. Paint them with some cozy designs by Suzie Shineski for I Love to Create to keep your home looking fresh and comfortable. Little phrases painted on the side bring cheer to anyone that steps foot in your home, but this project is also a great DIY gift idea. You can use any plain teacups in your house or go out and buy some miniature ones for this DIY kitchen craft.
