Cup of tea is a lovely way to spend an afternoon, but taking on a teacup project can be just as enjoyable. Perhaps you have stray cups begging to be used. Or maybe you're a fan of flea markets, where vintage china is yours for the taking. Either way, these pretty projects are a recipe for fun. A container garden, bouquet of roses, pot of herbs or daisy topiary are clever ways to give your home a lift. So take time for creativity and savor the pleasure for months to come.
Life imitates art, and sweetly so. Start with a rose-patterned china cup and a bouquet of roses to match.
Soak a foam brick in water for 30 minutes, cut it to fit neatly into a teapcup, clip rose stems slightly shorter than teacup height and insert stems in foam, starting around the perimeter and moving toward the center.
