a painted teapot diy

IMG.jpgThis oh-so-lovely and oh-so-easy DIY is another great idea that I saw within my InstaCraft book.

Although the time that it takes to complete this project is roughly 35 minutes, 5 minutes are dedicated to doodling, while the other 30 minutes are all done in the oven. Why can’t all crafts be this easy? If they were, I would be able to post one everyday for my fantastic followers!

I would also like to purchase plates from the Dollar Store and create my own patterns on them. I may end up drawing on all of the dinnerware in my house, as well as recreating every craft within this book! Sometimes, nothing beats having a giant wave of inspiration. Happy Wednesday!



    What a great idea and attractive design!

    So dainty! If you didnt live in the Arctic you could enjoy a cuppa in your English garden.
