All you need for this is a teacup, a copper pipe, a pipe adapter, and some epoxy.
Jeremy and I went to the local antique mall and found two teacups we thought would look beautiful in a garden.
Probably the funniest part of this whole process was going to Home Depot and asking them for good strong outdoor glue. They showed us all the cement and concrete glue. When we told them we were just trying to glue a teacup together I think they thought we were joking. We eventually found the perfect epoxy for what we needed.
Step 1: Gather supplies
Step 2: Mix glue based on manufactuerers instructions
Step 3: Glue pipe adapter onto bottom of saucer
Step 4: Spread glue onto bottom of teacup and glue to saucer
Step 5: Let the glue dry completely before attaching the copper pipe
This project is so so simple but the results are pretty great. When we gave one of these teacups to my Mom for her birthday, she couldn't believe we had made it!
Have you crafted anything lately? I'm always looking for fun new ideas :)
