And for those of you who feel a bit intimidated by all the projects I seem to turning out, don't be! Not everything presented in this blog was made recently— I have a small photo library of past projects to use when needed. So let that be a lesson to all of you— photograph your craft projects, you just never know when they might come in handy!Believe it or not, I made this teapot about ten years ago, from an old metal teapot a neighbor thought I could use. She was right, and I've been enjoying this joyful object filled with flowers, or even empty, every year since then.
- an old metal teapot, or even a cooking pot would be great too
- pieces of ceramics: solids and patterns, from either broken or worn dishes or ceramic tile
- tile adhesive or silicone
- grout, a color suited to your scheme
- a hammer to break the pieces
- protective eye-wear
- a damp cloth
Follow instructions as for address plaque in previous post, just keep in mind that when working with a round object, make sure that the pieces are not too big or your "round" pot may not look round anymore! You can use long vertical strips of tile, but anything placed horizontally needs to be curved itself or not too long. I think you'll see what I mean if you try a project like this, and I hope you do! Work on something like this over the winter, and as soon as spring peeks around the corner, fill it with some lovely annuals!
