I’m hanging a teapot wreath in welcome for a Mad Tea Party!
Did you get your tea party invitation by post?
If not, never fear, your invitation is here:
You’re invited to a Mad Tea Party at A Fanciful Twist, Saturday, July 24th.
There will be butterflies. . .
Cards. . .
Keys. . .
Hearts. . .
Tarts. . .
Tea, of course. . .
And most everything a girl in Wonderland could dream of.
Expect to see white rabbits, clocks, mushrooms, teacups, and a Cheshire Cat too!
DIY Teapot Wreath Details:
I started with a preserved boxwood wreath I had,
wrapping the ribbon around and attaching it with florist wire.
My teapot is enamel and has a gasket to keep the lid on and in place once it’s hanging.
I used some ribbon to thread it through the spout,
for a little illusion and fun visual of pouring tea.
I used ribbon from my Halloween stash with a fun black and white harlequin check and black and white stripes.
I found heart clothes pins in the dollar spot at Michaels around Valentine’s Day several years ago.
Assorted butterflies were a fun and colorful addition and have a wire
and/or clips on the back for easy attaching to the wreath.
Keys for Alice to unlock the door, Alice in Wonderland playing cards
and a deck of card with hearts, also from the dollar spot in Michaels,
provide some fun additions to the wreath.
The teapot was secured and tied on to the wreath with ribbon.
The gasket in the lid keeps it in place and from falling off the enamel teapot,
so there’s no fear of breaking.
Heart playing cards are clipped and attached to the ribbon of the wreath with clothespins.
Nothing is attached permanently so I can easily disassemble the wreath,
reusing all the elements again.
This was a fun project and easy to do for a Mad Tea Party using the wreath of your choice as a base. Since I had most of these items, the only thing that I purchased that was new, were some skeleton keys to hang from the wreath, along with the butterflies.
