I have been a little busy around our cottage in the desert. Not only is it Thanksgiving week, but I am in gift making mode. Today I created a DIY Christmas Gift For Tea Lovers.
The components are simple and it is super easy to make.
I thought you might want to see how I made my own DIY Christmas Gift For Tea Lovers.
When we were first married, my mom and her parents would come over every Sunday evening for dessert, tea and play with our little babies. It was a tradition that we carry on with our own children and grandchildren. Only now, we are the grandparents. How fun is that?
Those tender memories are what inspired a DIY Christmas Gift For Tea Lovers.
First off, I must let you know that I bought my tea cup and tea pot at a thrift store. They are so perfect for this gift.
What you will need to create your own DIY Christmas Gift For Tea Lovers:
1 ceramic tea pot
1 small tea cup
Small Christmas ornaments
Several wrapped tea bags
4 yards of fabric ribbon
1 yard white tulle
12 inches narrow silver ribbon or twine
I found my small glass ornaments at Home Goods a few years ago. I have seen them several places since then.
The tea cup is trimmed with gold. But, there are so many choices at the thrift store. Choose your favorite.
I carefully tied 1/2 yard of the plaid fabric ribbon to the tea cup. This will allow me to attach the tea cup to the ceramic tea pot lid.
I stacked about five tea bags and gathered them up in 2 strips of 6 inch pieces of tulle. Using a 1/2 yard of the plaid fabric ribbon, I tied a knot to secure the tea bags in place.
Wrapping the silver narrow ribbon around the plaid ribbon, I now had a “tie” to attach the tea bags to the tea pot. (As seen in the picture above.) I hope that makes sense…
Now I am ready to assemble my DIY Christmas Gift For Tea Lovers.
I attached the tea cup to the tea pot lid by wrapping a simple tying a bow round the lid handle.
To attach the tea bags wrapped in tulle, I tied a simple bow around the tea pot handle, as well.
For the final touch, I filled the tea cup with small glass ornaments. I love the touch of silver, don’t you?
Your DIY Christmas Gift For Tea Lovers could EASILY be placed in a gift bag. Your tea lover will enjoy your gift for a long time.
This was SUPER easy and it is the ideal gift for your favorite tea lover.
Thanks for stopping by and I make it a great day, my friends!
