Christmas Tea Cup Candy Dish

Make a pretty Christmas Tea Cup Candy dish using an old tea cup. Making a lid for it is simple and only takes a few items. Fill it with colorful candy for a pretty display over the holidays.

This cup is from a set that I bought last year at Goodwill. As I was taking it out of the box once I brought it home, I dropped one of the cups and broke it into several pieces. Don’t you hate when something like that happens? Since the set was only a few dollars, I didn’t feel too bad about it, but it left me with three cups instead of four.

That’s when I decided I would use the remaining cups for crafts.

I used a wood craft disc that I found among my many wood craft pieces for the lid. Use the disc as a template to cut a circle from white felt. Spray the disc with adhesive spray and place the felt circle onto it.

Cut a piece of rickrack to fit around the disc and hot glue it in place.

Hot glue a mini pine cone and red floral berries to the center of the felt lid. You could also use bells or any Christmasy embellishment.

Place a generous amount of hot glue onto the saucer at the spot that the cup will sit. Place the cup onto the hot glue and hold for about a minute. Add a small ribbon and tie it off into a bow on the cup handle.

Mine is filled with holiday M&Ms, but any colorful candy would look pretty. I added a few small glitter present ornaments that I bought last year at Walmart to the saucer. Remove the plastic hook and add small dots of hot glue to hold them in place.

These would make a fun hostess gift or as a small gift to anyone on your list. Using a seasonally decorated cup would make this a great idea for any holiday.
