I’m trying to figure what to use these cups for. I was thinking adding flowers?
I have these cups and need ideas on how to decorate them?
You can paint them. Marbleize them. Decoupage them. Wrap them loosely with fabric. Then grow some succulents or herbs. You can also make then into candles.
Make bird feeders
Kim, I love your cup! The shape, the (gray-blueish?) color and the handle!
Yes, this would look adorable with any floral additions you choose just be careful with the size of your arrangements, that they don't overwhelm the cup. Seasonal arrangements would look fabulous. I would not paint the cup or do anything permanent, myself, as I think it's perfect as it is.
To display it, you could set it on a shelf/counter/table or hang it from a hook or a peg.
You could also fill it with soil and plant any small, slow growing plants you like. I suggest you put some gravel in the bottom to allow the water to drain from the root area.
Or use artificial plants or flowers, I've seen some that are very real looking.
Add a ribbon and or a bow that complements your arrangement and the season.
Oh I LOVE your cups! My first thought was in the kitchen as a large utensil holder (spatulas etc.) than you could add your kitchen accent colors via stencils or decals!
Thank you. I wish they were that big.
or plop in a potted plant!
i would for sure create a nice holiday vignette with some other holiday items

I think these would be great for flowers or succulents. You could add a design on the cup with decoupage, marble paint, washi tape, or leave as is.
Can spray paint, add a bow to the handle and fill with holiday candy. Give as gifts to neighbors or people you visit.
I can see succulents in them just brimming over with growth. Another thought would be to fill them with suet and seeds hang them by the handles for the birds.
Flowers would be a great thing to put in them, or alternatively, small green plants or succulents.
Hi Kim: Flowers or plants would be nice, or you can get some moss and make a little fairie house and yard.
Flowers would be a great idea. The opening looks a little small to comfortably drink from.
Hi Kim, You can turn them into floating watering cups similar to what we did with a teapot here - https://acraftymix.com/blog/floating-teapot-tutorial/
What a darling little cup! I plant flowers in mine. Sometimes I add decals, too. https://www.exquisitelyunremarkable.com/2018/04/tea-cup-planter.html
