Twelve Weeks of Christmas! Crafts #2


Crafts #2

Teapots!


Why not fill them with Christmas decorations (picks/greenery)?
As I was thinking about what to post for TWOC this week, for some reason a packed-up box of teapots that were in my closet came popping into mind. Why not get them out and make them become a Christmas decoration?
The first one (above) was my mothers. The lid is long gone, but it's at least 75-years-old. The gold painted decoration is probably 18 k gold.

So, I got out several others and filled them with picks bought at HL at half price.
Soooooo..... look around for the unexpected (containers) at your house and turn them into new Christmas decorations this year! The sky's the limit!
Pink, but still Christmasy....


This last container is a planter with faux greenery; I may still add some bows to these teapots, or they may be done.

Very clever, Jayne! I always love to take something that isn't necessarily a Christmas decoration and tweak it just enought so that it is:)

Thanks for linking up!!
