My friend just gave me a lovely antique teapot in ivory with gold filigree that was a part of her mother's collection. Using this beloved and beautiful gift for this project would be an ideal way to set it off and eliminates the worry of filling it with water every time I want to,use it as a vase since it is tall and narrow at the top. This can give it new life and also the place of honor it deserves! Thanks for sharing a great project and idea!

I like this ideal it refreshing and can be used anywhere indoors and outdoors for flower arragements...thank you for sharing

What a cute idea I also like to watch the nd hand stores for the tiny old teacups too They make nice little gifts for your fellow crafters Just take your cup and turn it upside down Trace the cup edge on a piece of fabric that complements the cup Add a quarter inch to the edge mark and cut out Then fill your cup with fiber fill stuffing and cover with the fabric piece carefully tucking in the edges around the fill Using a glue gun place glue between the inside of the cup and the tucked in edge of the fabric leaving a small area open Add more stuffing until it is firm and seal the hole with more glue It makes a cute little pincushion even if there is no saucer and takes only a few minutes to make Another tiny gift for your favorite tea drinker isRead More to take a tea cup place a wick and fill with prepared candle wax These make cute gifts especially if you do have a matching saucer If you don't have time to craft a gift you can purchase a few different types of teas and place an assortment of tea bags into a teacup Accent with an vintage or antique teaspoon when wrapping
