Repurpose Teapots, Coffee Pots, Cups and Saucers. What fun it can be!

When you have teapots, coffee pots, cups and saucers that you will never use, are lonely, from broken sets, etc . . . Repurpose them for crafting! Teapots are not for everyone. However, they have some fabulous alternatives for uses that go beyond your kitchens. Get some ideas with things shared below, and visit the links by clicking to read more from those shared sites.

If you have some extra teapots, coffee pots, cups and saucers that are rather ugly, maybe have some imperfections, and just are not being used you can also decorate them with your home decor. Cover them with stones, some pretty glass pebbles, paint them, wrap them with some twine or yarns, and etc. 

There are so many uses to repurpose, and upcycle some of these pieces into as you can see above. Those are only just a few ideas being shared. You can consider making some into lights, lamps, of course planters as you have seen and wind chimes, consider bird feeders with them, simple candle holders, candle holders with stands, and there is so much out there to see and consider with these items. 

Whew! It can be over whelming with all the creativity, but oh so enjoyable too! If you are like me when thrifting sometimes I find these unwanted pieces that are missing lids, have gotten rather ugly over time, appear to be unwanted, but you like to revive them with new life. Bring it home, and find something decorative to do with it. Don't forget that some of these pieces might be sitting around your homes that were forgotten too. There are many people out there who make these things, and offer them for sale with their online shops for those who do not have the creative bug of making these. Check with Ecrater, Etsy, and yes Ebay does have some sellers who will also offer some creative items as well. Don't forget to check with your search engines like Bing, and Google as you will see many things before your eyes come alive.

Now, when you are out thrifting and yard saling you will have some more unwanted treasures to look for. You got some ideas to fill your home decor with. Have fun, and Thanks for visiting with LilacsNDreams. See you all again soon.
