Crafty Make: A Succulent in a Vintage Tea Cup and Saucer

SUCCULENTPLANTTEACUPA few months ago, I saw some mini succulent plants in white tea cups being sold at a garden centre for £10 each and thought “I bet I could do that cheaper?”. So, I have. For a grand total of £4.49, I made possibly one of the cutest gifts I’ve ever made (sort-of, more compiled) for my dear friend’s birthday. The gold Scandinavian leaf patterned vintage tea cup and saucer I found at a local table top sale for 50p and the flowering succulent I bought for £3.99. I excercised major will-power to not keep it for myself but will definitely be making more of these as I love them so much

  1. What a lovely idea I shall definately be having a go at making one of these. Did you drill a hole in the bottom of the cup for drainage? Just found your blog and am really enjoying it.

  2. I’m very glad you didn’t keep it for yourself ;-)! I need to come car booting with you clearly, the teacup and saucer are beautiful.
    Also, the succulent seems to be about the only house plant that our cat, Licorice, hasn’t eaten her way through.
