DIY Mother’s Day Gift {A Tea Cup Craft}

DIY Mother's Day Gift

Not your regular “Tea Cup”- A  DIY Mother’s Day Gift Idea

If you are still trying to figure out a Mother’s Day gift, I highly recommend going the DIY route! Nothing says “I love you” like a handmade gift from the heart. No matter how easy or intricate the project, it is sure to be remembered for years to come.

As you have probably learned from my posts, I am all about easy and cheap DIY projects. I also have a thing for tea cups and this post will show you another super cute way to use them.

All you need is:

  • Old tea cup and saucer
  • Peat pallet (for seedlings)
  • Flower seeds
  • Potting soil
  • Heavy duty glue

Tea Cup craft

Take your peat pellet and place it in some warm water and leave it for about an hour. It will soak up all the water and expand into a cute little tube of contained soil. Once it has expanded, you can take your seed and place them in the center of the pellet and push down until the seed is covered.  Next you are going to fill your tea cup with the potting soil and then place the pellet inside and cover it with some extra potting soil. Finally you are going to glue the cup to the saucer! The glue that I used has to cure for 24 hours. Make sure you follow the directions on the product you are using.

    This is so cute! I am going to do this with my son this year for a gift for my Mom.

    This is such a great idea, especially with a cup and saucer set that maybe has a little chip or something, and not used any more.

    I am pretty sure I have commented on this post before. But I think I might actually use it today! My impossible to buy for mother’s birthday is coming up next Saturday. I think this might be the perfect fit with a bag of bird seed! Love it!

    I love this craft! I love using mismatched pieces of china for various things…I have a sugar with hand painted roses that I would use for this gift idea. Thank you!
