Teacup Garland

Tea parties can be so much fun to plan – I just helped organize a tea-themed bridal shower and I wish I had made this garland in time to use as decoration! Make this garland as a super simple way to add some whimsical decor to your next tea party.

Supplies: Ruler, styrofoam balls, string, paint brushes, paint, glue gun, scissors, craft knife, screw punch (optional), skewer, tape

Step 1: Cut the styrofoam balls in half using a sharp knife.
Step 2: Paint the styrofoam halves. Let dry.
Step 3: Cut circles the same size as the tops of the styrofoam halves.
Step 4: Use a screw punch to pre-punch a center hole in the middle of the paper circles.
Step 5: Pierce the stryfoam halves with the skewer.
Step 6: Hot glue the paper circles on the tops of the styrofoam halves so that the holes line up.
Step 7: Cut matching strips of paper about 1/2″ by 3 1/2″ long.
Step 8: Hot glue onto the styrofoam halves as shown, to form handles.
Step 9: Tape a piece of string onto the skewer and use as a needle to thread the teacups onto the string. Use a tiny dab of hot glue on the bottom of each to keep in place on the string.
