Teapot Plaques and Decorative Holders

Well I had to go back to the drawing board. My daughter liked the teapot plaque so much she asked me if I could do another one. Only flip the Teapot the oposite direction. I said I could do this.
Then she asked if she could have my decorative holder. I said I could make another one.
I'm just happy she liked them so much. I do have to admit 2 teapots are better then one.
I had my GD help me with the 2nd one. She really enjoyed painting the teapot plaque.
Here is my daughter's house warming present. 2 teapot plaques and a decorative holder.
I think these 3 pieces look good on stands too.  So now it is settled this is my daughter's house warming present!!!  She is very grateful and appreciative that I made these for her.

 
 
These decorative holders I made for myself. LOL
I'm keeping them for decorative Craft room storage!!
I'm might bling up the 2 side holders more. I just have decided yet.
I know sometimes when I post things on my blog.
I see things in a different light and make some changes.
So don't be surprised if you see me posting more about these pieces. LOL

 
 
 
Enjoy!!!!!

Decorative Holder

I picked up this holder piece at Michaels. I decorated it up and this is what I got.
I'm going to use it for my crafty supplies. The beads, ribbon and lace I got at Walmart.
The holder and butterflies I got at Michaels.



Teapot Wall Plaque



I made my daughter a house warming present. She loves teapots. So I found this wood teapot at Michael's. I painted it with acrylic paint and sprayed it with a glaze. Then embellished it with a vine, flowers and butterflies.
