Whimsical Garden Teapot

 I got the idea on Hometalk (click here to see their post) and I knew I just had to try it.  I think this is the year of the "whimsical garden decor" for me as I just completed my Napkin Decorated Fence, Plate Garden Border and I have a few other ideas in the planning stages!
I love this bright yellow! It really stands out in the flower bed. For the prisms, I threaded them through a thin piece of wire and attached that to the inside of the teapot.
As I said, I turned the candle holder upside down for this project because the other end has that pointy 'stake' to hold a candle and I didn't want to bother trying to cut it off.  And the saucer literally fit the circle PERFECTLY like it was meant to be there.  E6000 glue was used to cement the cup and spoon to the saucer and then to attach the saucer to the holder.
All of the supplies (I already had the paint and the spoon) cost less than 6.00.  
Now hoping for some SUNSHINE and warmer temps so I can enjoy my yard and gardens!  Have a wonderful and safe Memorial Day Weekend!

On any given week (depending on how busy I am!) I love to participate in Link Parties.  These gals put a lot of time and effort into hosting these parties so I always want to show my appreciation by directing my readers to these blogs.

  7. This garden tea pot is delightful, Lauren. Yellow is such a cheerful color, and perfect for the summer days. I love how the beads are dripping down looking like the tea is being poured.

    Happy June!
