Teacup & Saucer Makeover

by - September 28, 2013

This teacup and saucer once held a scented candle.  I picked up two of them at Urban Outfitters ages ago.  Once the candle was done, I cleaned them up and they sat in the garage for a couple of years. They were just too pretty to donate or use at a garage sale.

So I cleaned them up and decided to make them more functional. 
What's neat is the teacup is already glued to the saucer so I didn't have to break out the E-6000.  I did, however, print out the word miscellany on clear label paper to add to the front of the teacup.
Then I filled it with random pieces including these great, vintage French flashcards.  I add them in with my Etsy "thank you" bags and use them for tags.
It's also a great spot for odd buttons and some keys.  Now I can easily grab what I need without having to dig through piles of stuff in my craft room.  Now I just have to figure out what I'm putting on the other one.

  1. Pretty! I wouldn't have wanted to give them up either once the candle was done. They are a great item to repurpose. I like how you've used this one. I'm sure you'll figure something out for the other one. There must be another useful thing it can hold for you.

  2. Nice way to repurpose, and it's pretty too. I'd probably have nails in one. lol
