I have an incomplete set of china given to me by my late mother in law. What sort of crafty ideas can I use it for? Also have silverware set.

    Before you craft away, are there grandchildren or other family members who might like a keepsake from her? Even if the set is incomplete there could be a specific piece or cup and saucer that could be given as a token. Just a thought, I'm sentimental

    You could make candles with the cup and saucers.

    Save it as a special gift to someone who will cherish it

    If there is no one who wants to have a keepsake, break it into pieces that can be used to make stepping stones for your garden. That way you will remember her every time you visit your garden.

    Thanks for the input. I was going to take it to goodwill now I think I will do a couple of the suggestions that were listed.

    Make a vintage cake stand. Glue a teacup to middle of larger plate then smaller plate on top of teacup. Fill with cakes and cream scones - lovely.

      @Debra Go to Lowes or Home depot to the ceramic tile sections, there are a variety of groud's indoor and out. tell one of the employees what you want to do with it,indoor to outdoor,maybe a cute accent table or if you have enough china you could get a little round cafe table,cheaply , and put outdoor proud and make a Mosaic on it, just pick up 2 wrought iron chairs , very cute for having cafe in the morning outside, weather permitting of course lol

    or you could look online and find the matching pieces fairly cheap and have a full set to use at special occasions

    Make candles out of cup and saucer. Or trinket holders. Or herb pots.
