I have a rather large stash of old teacups and saucers in my studio. Within that stash there are many mismatched pieces and the saucers out-number the dainty cups. You'll often find very pretty lonely saucers quite inexepensively at thrift shops. Their cups long lost because of chips and broken handles. It seems a shame they are so often overlooked, so I decided to give one some love and make a candy dish to hold some easter treats.
Here's the bundle of stuff I started out with:
I grabbed some pretty Botanical Tea from Graphic 45 that coordinated with the colours in my saucer. Then I gathered some Petaloo Botanica flowers to match.
I've painted an oval wooden plaque and candlestick with acrylic paints then covered the oval with the Graphic 45 papers. Next, I affixed the candlestick to the base and distressed the edges before attaching the saucer with some E6000 adhesive.
Then it's just a matter of layering those beautiful Botanica flowers to embellish!
Don't forget to buy loads of treats to place inside! My husband is a jelly bean man, but I prefer chocolate bunnies.
