It’s that fun time of the month again where I join together with my friends for our Monthly Movie Challenge! This month’s movie choice is one of my all time favourites Beauty and the Beast! So with a little thinking, I started to think about who was my favourite character in the movie. It by far was “Chip”! Just in case you don’t know who Chip is, he’s the adorable little-chipped teacup. Seeing as I love all things Vintage Farmhouse and LOVE collecting old tea sets a Vintage Farmhouse Repurposed Nest Teacups seemed to suit me to a tee.

- Thrifted Cups – These are small teacups that I found at my local thrift store but larger ones would work too.
- Eggs – I used a combination of blue speckled eggs and wooden eggs that I had in my craft stash. But these ones from Amazon will surely work as well.
- Glue Gun
- Alphabet Stamps
- Black Stamp Pad
- Natural Spanish Moss – The grass that I used was leftover from a bag that I found last year at my local $2 dollar shop. But I would love to make some with this Spanish moss from Amazon 🙂
- Small paper flowers
- Kraft Tags
Step 1– Break off a small section of the moss and mould it into a nest.
Step 2 – Make a small tag template out of scrap cardstock that fits your size cup that you’re using. Then using the kraft tags cut out accordingly.
Step 3– Using your stamps and ink, stamp the word “nest”. Glue on the flower. I originally had white paper flowers but dyed them in coffee to give them a nice aged look.
Step 4 – Take your glue gun and glue in the nest and the egg to secure. Make sure the handle is at the top just in case you want to hang it. Pop in the tag. I didn’t glue this down the tag as it fit in all snuggly. But if yours seems loose glue.
And there you have some cute little Vintage Farmhouse Repurposed Nest Teacups! They would make great Easter gifts for all the non- chocolate eater people that you know. In fact they would make a lovely gift all year round.
