Finding tea cups at estate sales or using the last of an old set really makes this project not only fun, but cost effective. These are so easy to make and would make a lovely centerpiece for a different look at each table for a bridal shower or any girlie gathering. Or it could be a housewarming gift, or a give away favor to guests at a family gathering or reunion. Love the look of this lovely project and thanks for sharing the instructions and idea.

How lovely!! This is such a nice idea for using some of my teacups! For me, I would avoid using the glue and instead rest the foam block inside on its own - that way I can still use my precious teacups!

How precious are these vintage flower teacups? I am amazed at the amount of quite easy and effortless DIY craft projects that are offered here. Some ideas I never even thought of or knew exsisted! I can spend $ at a retail store to buy cups with floral arrangements in them. But I like the idea of making them myself for WAY less money. And they can be personalized to fit my decor and colors. I always loved finding teacups at the thrift store and now I have a use for them!

I love teacup crafts! They're a surprisingly versatile craft material, despite being so fragile. And what's even better is that you can find them cheaply in antique and thrift stores!
