My tea cup chandelier is now ready to unveil!
Now you know why I was working in tea cups this week.
The original tea cups were in the "mismatched section" in my local antique store. They were $1 each and I thought they would be perfect for my chandelier/resin project idea. Tea cups are very inexpensive when they are missing their plate.
Filled with papers and embellishments I think they will have a much longer life as art.
The chandelier looks very pretty on our deck. I plan to hang it in my studio full time though. I'll move it to the deck for outdoor dining occasions. I also plan to add a few more items....this chandelier will be seen again soon.
Now, I bet you were wondering where I got the metal chandelier frame? HHH Enterprises
sent me one to experiment with. From the minute I unpacked it, I knew I finally had an excuse to play with some tea cup ideas. I also decided to spray paint it pink. I can think of so many themes. Imagine this frame covered in paper flowers or yarn bombed.
Wouldn't it be a wonderful centerpiece?
I have no idea how many they might have in stock.
If you are interested HHH gave us a little discount.
If you use the code carmi12 at check out you'll get a 12% discount. Yeah!
(They can't extend the free shipping offer since these are bulky and must be shipped in a big box to keep them safe.)
