I made these for the STS but I liked them enough that I wanted to share them here too. I got these two wooden teacups at a thrift store and they sat in my craft room for about a year. I was cleaning out recently and almost got rid of them when I got this idea instead.
I painted them white, decoupaged them with origami paper, and made the steam swirls out of floral wire. They can sit on a counter or hang on the wall since I put hangers on the back.
