INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Tea parties are not just for kids anymore! Tea Party decor can be a beautiful theme to use for a backyard summer soiree. This project shows you got to turn old finds into elegant upcycled tea party centerpieces. Start off by gathering thrift store teapots and paint. (This is a great way to upcycle and reuse teapots in a new way.)
    Step 0 Example
  2. Also gather large flea market-find candleholders.
    Step 1 Example
  3. Use a medium flat brush to paint the candleholder starting at the bottom third with Artifact. Mix Innocence, New Life, and Refreshing separately, each with equal parts of Artifact. Use these mixes to paint the middle portions of the candleholders. Paint the tops individually with Innocence, New Life, or Refreshing.
    Step 2 Example
  4. Use a medium paintbrush to paint the teapots with the same colors.
    Step 3 Example
  5. Using a generous amount of E6000 Glue, adhere the teapots to the candleholders.
    Step 4 Example
  6. Now you can finalize the centerpiece using a combination of real and artificial plants. Use varying shades of greens and whites to compliment the pastel colors of the teapots. Use cascading plants that drip and curl to pour out of the tea spouts. Hanging amaranthus, string of pearls, donkey's tail, or lemon corral are some of the plants we recommend.
    Step 5 Example

HELPFUL HINTS

Let the E6000 Glue set about eight minutes before adhering pieces together.
