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!

IMG_5.jpg IMG_6.jpgIMG_7.jpg IMG_9.jpgEasy peasy. I loved this simple, yet unique project so much that I’ll be drawing similar designs on my plain white mugs so that I will have a matching tea set. 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.

  • Welcome, friends! My name is Emory. I am a wife, mother of two (one earthside and one with the angels), and an animal rescuer. This is our life on the Canadian prairies.

  • Early morning post (before I start painting our living room walls). We viewed our first acreage in four years last month. While the outside of the property was one hundred times more appealing than the interior, it’s inspired us to see more. We’re country folk at heart- both being raised on farms and acreages. We probably will not stop until we find that piece of prairie land that whispers our names. 🌾💛 Happy birthday, husband. I’m sorry that your birthday doesn’t always go as planned. Also, transitioning from you being gone for weeks, to then being home for a few hours, only to leave again is anything but smooth at first. But know that Remy and I do love and appreciate you so much. I hope that you have a wonderful year (since we’ll probably be spending much of it apart), wherever you now are.
