Floating Tea Cups


All that is needed is China tea cup and saucer, a fork, glue and variety of small silky flowers, little bit of bling like little coloured gems or pearls
Bend fork, and stick pronged end of fork tm saucer, then stick other end of fork to inside of cup. You need to make sure you bend your fork to balance the weight of the cup. Let glue dry.
Start to arrange and stick flowers amd gems to cover fork so it looks like flowers are cascading from cup. Ta da !
You can use a strong glue stick and gun or I have used Gorilla glue which seems more stronger to hold fork to cup
With easter coming you could add spring flowers amd painted eggs for am easter theme

    How do you equal the wait of the cup so that it doesn’t fall over

    What glue seems to work best to secure metal fork to saucer? Anyone ?

      Iam doing this tomorrow for my craft class. I used E-6000 glue and started tonight. We are just doing the cup tipped onto the saucer until I have time to play with the fork idea. It takes so long to dry so this will be a 2-3 day project. We are doing Christmas!
