How to Upcycle Broken or Chipped Teacups
Two of my favorite teacups were chipped lately, making them unusable for drinking. They are decorative though and I love the patterns, so I thought I would convert them in to planters. One was chipped on the inside lip and the other has a chipped handle.
Make Teacup Planters for Your Windowsill
Steps to make these into a planter are very simple. Since there are no holes for drainage, I recommend putting stones in the bottom to help keep the roots out of any water and to use soil-less potting mix to help control moisture.
- Put about 1 inch worth of stones in the bottom of the cup
- Fill up the cup to about 1/2 inch from the top with potting mix
- Plant 2 of your favorite succulents in the soil.
- Top with decorative stones and add a bit of water
The most important part of care for these planters is to make sure you don’t overwater them. The potting mix will help, but be cautious when watering.
