Floating Tea Cups

Karen Caton
by Karen Caton
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

    Im making the floating teacup. Ive used gorilla glue and also E6000. Neither will hold the fork. Any ideas?

    I just tried the DIY tea cup. I got the whole thing together( I did the waterfall coming out of the cup.) It looked so cute then CRASH top heavy it tipped backwards n came apart ...very upset. Do you think it will help glueing in more of a straight up position instead of at an angle would help.I appreciate an input . Thank you

    Balancing the teacup I could not do. I used a roll of dimes to balance and glued another bigger saucer to it. The saucer does not have to match but needs to be heavy. You can cover the second plate or saucer with paper doily .

    So please give a more detailed explanation of how to balance that cup! The glue gun did not work to keep fork in place. I will try Gorilla glue.

    If anyone wants to know epoxy holds the fork in position very well.another thing you can glue rocks under your flowers to balance the cup on to the saucer.worked made 4 of them.
