I have quite a few tea cups and I have been wanting to come up with some different ways to use them. I have come up with 9 options of things to do with your teacups.
Put your saucer on top and make it either a candle holder or a snack stand.
Plant some flowers in it. Great for a gift too!
You can use fake flowers if you are planning to use the cup again.
Use some silicone or glue of your choice and glue your cup to your saucer. Fill it with bird seed to make it a bird feeder.
Repurpose an old candle holder. Silicone or use a glue of your choice to glue your cup to your saucer, and then your saucer to the candle holder.
Add some birdseed or water and you have a bird feeder.
Upcycle your candle holders by placing your tea cups on top and add battery operated tea lights.
Buy an old candle holder, spray paint it, place your tea cups on top for a nice display.
Add treats to the cups and you have a serving tray.
Upcycle an old candle holder – add tea cups and then your choice of battery operated tea lights, for outdoors add birdseed to make it a bird feeder, add solar lights for a stunning display, etc.
Make an outdoor display by using a glue of your choice to adhere the cup to the saucer and the saucer to an old candle holder. Place your tea/coffee pot on a garden hook next to it, and glue a crystal to the spout.

Chas these are all really great repurposes. And you know we all have lots of left over tea cups.
Thanks Mary, so true and I love each and every one of mine. I so sad to just have them sitting in the cupboard so wanted to do something so I could enjoy them more.

Chaz, could you tell me how would you be able to separate the cup & saucer? I have a cup & saucer glued together and I would like to separate it. I do not know what type of glue was used.
I received it with flowers in it, and as i said i would like to take it apart. Do you have any suggestions how to do this. All the help i can get would be appreciated..
You are so talented. Thank you for any help.
Hi Joanne, thank you for your email. I want to make sure you receive this so I’ll reply from the email that was delivered to my inbox.
