This week has been so full of Uni work and preparations for my daughters 21st that I haven't had time to Op-Shop - sad but true. I am planning a remedial trip tomorrow as a little reward - once I have baked 3 dozen mini-quiches! Over the last few weeks I have gathered up a few tea-pots and those funny Troll dolls for a project so today I thought I would share the transformation from Flea Market Find to 21st- Birthday- party- table- decos!
Firstly you take a few tea-pots - the rule here was that they could cost no more than one dollar!
Now, if you are squeamish or have a particular fondness for Toll dolls you should look away ....
There was some dismembering involved I am afraid.
But I have to say this chap doesn't seem too concerned ...
Then the footsies are added to the pot/s -
And painted white.
Then it was time to decorate them with a few red hearts and voila! Perfect teapots to hold some flowers for an Alice in Wonderland tea-party methinks!
And the finished article full of paper blooms - there are very few flowers in my garden at the best of times and with the weather we have had over the past few months I just knew paper was a better option! Besides, they are kinda kooky!
