Tea For One & Smoothfoam Too

Got you with that title didn't I?
So glad I could share my project today, it is one of my favorite ideas- altering vintage items.
Using a vintage tea cup and saucer and a Smoothfoam Ball I was ready to make some magic.
 1. Make sure you have a ball that will fit and still have a little wiggle room for adornment.
 2. Set your ball up somewhere that you can paint and allow to dry. I used  Dragon fruit Americana Deco art Paint.
 3. I used a heavy duty glass glue to hold my teacup to my saucer.
4. Once my ball was dry it is ready to embellished.
 5. Using a boa pieces and pearls,and paper flowers, I was able to make a decorative piece that could be used to hold jewelry or even decorative pins.
Because Smoothfoam has such a wonderful texture-the ball is able to hold my decorative pins without them drooping.

Some additional supplies I used:
Dragon fruit Americana Deco art Paint
Ranger Diamond Stickles
I Am Roses Flowers

    I have a tea cup and saucer just sitting around doing nothing, but collecting dust, so what a great project to make and give as a gift to someone.
