Tea Wreath


Tea wreath, a wreath for any season!

I saw a Tea Wreath over on kojodesigns, and thought it was a stroke of genius, so I had to try it for myself.( kojodesigns is a great blog, they have many creative ideas, and a cute new baby too, you should check it out.)   I have so many  different kinds of teas that I have to keep them out on a shelf, in a tub, in my utility room.  Not very convenient, rightI followed their tutorial, using colors of paper to compliment my kitchen, and it turned out really nice.  Mine holds about 30 teabags of my choosing.  It's nice when family and friends come over and I don't  have to go digging out the "Tub O Tea" for them to select their favorite, I can just put out a variety on the  wreath, and They can push a clothespin and take the one they want, then when it starts to get a little empty, I can refill it.

I also worked on some jewelry this week and took pics of some I had made a couple of months ago, I will put a few of them on for you to see.

  3. Hi, Jane. Love your tea bag wreath - so clever and also thanks for visiting Alexandra and Julia Blog. I am glad you've asked about wallpaper old books and how to use them. I have a ton of them and it is a great material to work with. You can use for wreath and other craft projects. I have lots of posts for holiday season all made with wallpaper. Stop by if you have a moment and check them out. Thanks again.
