Watercolor Latte Cup

This cute latte cup is just the right size for holding candies or treats at a tea party themed event. It also makes a great gift card holder, or catchall for small jewelry, craft supplies or other trinkets.

What You’ll Need:

Step 1: Apply Ric Rac trim to the bottom of the cup, as shown.

Step 2: Apply a bit of string to serve as the line for the “tea bag” portion of the cup decoration.

Step 3: Embellish the cup with Micro Flowers in an arrangement that is pleasing to your eye.

Step 4: Apply small pom pom trim around the perimeter of the cup, like this trim from Expo International.

Step 5: add embellishments as well to the tea bag. I love these pretty passion colored micro flowers.

Step 6: Add embossed daisies to the side of the cup. This shade of aqua provides a stunning contrast on the cup, and the gold metallic centers of the flower add just the right amount of shimmer.

Step 7: A cascade of Helena Roses in pink add whimsical charm to the decorative tea cup.

Step 8: Gold sequin melange is a great way to add sparkle and shine to this look. I love the way the mix comes in different sizes.

Step 9: Last, place a watercolor Latte sticker inside the cup and fill with your favorite treats!

Thanks for stopping by, and remember to celebrate everything!
