Teacup Candles

Teacup CandleI love crafts with a tea theme to them. Today I want to share these Teacup Candles from Design Sponge. What a great use of old teacups found in thrift stores.

You will need some microwavable soy wax, wicks, hot glue gun, a thermometer, a microwavable container, and if you want to add color and scent them some dye and candle scent.

I'm wondering if you could add some tea leaves to the hot wax to add color and scent. I'm definitely going to try it.

I found this great teacup candle project from my friend Heather of Dollar Store Crafts. She finds the best things! Thanks Heather.

Edible Teacup Party Favor

Edible Teacup Party FavorI love parties and tea parties are very high on that list. I am always on the lookout for fun party favors or craft projects that can be done at a party. This adorable edible teacup party favor fits the bill.

My friend Heather from Dollar Store Crafts was kind enough to share this with me and I knew that I needed to share it with you. Posted on Ada & Darcy this yummy treat is super easy to make. You will need:

1. Biscuits
2. Marshmallow
3. Half a mint lifesaver
4. Freckle chocolate
5. Icing mixture to glue it all together.

The blog is written by an Australian so biscuit equals cookie and freckle chocolate equals nonpareils.

Make these up ahead of time and place one at each place setting, decorate your buffet with them, or wrap them in a cellophane bag as a party favor. I can also imagine these would be a lot of fun to put together at a child's birthday party with a tea theme.  Enjoy making (and then eating) these edible teacup party favors.

A Use For Your Old Tea Bags

Tea WreathI came across this great craft project from my friend Heather on her Dollar Store Crafts site. It is a Tea Wreath and was designed by the creative gals over at Kojo Designs. If your tea collection is anything like mine, you probably have a bunch of tea bags that you just don't know what to do with.

Now you can display them with style with this very pretty tea wreath project. It takes two pieces of cardboard, some wrapping or scrapbook paper, some clothes pins, a ribbon to hang it with, and a hot glue gun.

I love how pretty it looks and that it gives a use for all those tea bags laying loose in my tea cabinet. Check out all the instruction for making the tea wreath over at Kojo Designs.
