Look in secondhand shops to find a variety of teacups and saucers. 

Step 1


Drill for Drainage

Drill a hole in the bottom of the teacup. This will allow for water drainage. To do this, place a small scrap of wood under the teacup base, making sure the teacup rests on the wood. Use a tungsten-tipped drill bit and wear safety goggles when drilling. Ceramic and porcelain can easily shatter, so use a slow drill speed and very little pressure. 

Step 2


Add Rocks

Fill the bottom of the teacup with small rocks. 

Step 3


Pot the Plant

Place your plant and dirt into the cup. Set the cup on top of the saucer to catch excess water.
