Upcycled Wooden Tea Pot

Have you been hopping along with theXyron/Teresa Collins Blog Hop going on all this week?  I hope so and I hope you have been leaving comments for your chance to win the prize that is up for grabs!  For more information please check out the Xyron Blog.

I am sure you know how much I love the Teresa Collins products so I couldn't wait to play and take part in the Hop.  I also love to upcycle and that is what I have done for you today.  I used the Daily Stories collection, I LOVE this rose print paper and the colors, so soft and pretty!  I decided to upcycle a wooden teapot that I purchased at a Thrift Shop.  First I basecoated the pot.  Then, I just traced the teapot onto the pattern paper, cut it out and then used my Xyron 9" Creative Station to add adhesive to the back and voila.  Easy peesy!


Finally I created a little sequin tag using the Teresa Collins sequins in the collection and some stamps from Papertrey Ink.  I used the 1.5" Create-a-Sticker to paper piece the label.  I then tied it on with some Divine Twine.  I thought this would make a nice way to give some tea as a gift.

Here is the before photo.  I just took the metal tea plaque off before painting and adhering the paper.  I then just reattached it when I was done.
