This Wire Teacup Garden Stake was so easy to make and a perfect addition to my garden! I was thrifting at a local Goodwill a few weeks back and came across this fabulous oversized copper wire teacup. I looked at it once then came back to it for a second look. As I examined it, seeing that the price was $1.99, I thought…perfect garden stake. And yes it is just that – a perfect Teacup Garden Stake!

Even one of the Goodwill employees commented on my great teacup find as I waited in line! I was thrilled!

I have been trying to figure out just what it might have been used for before being discarded. My thought was it was hanging on someones kitchen wall in the 70’s along with a wild avocado colored wallpaper! Do you have any idea what the original purpose of this teacup would be? I would love to hear your thoughts!

The first thing I did was go to the hardware store and pick up a 3′ copper pipe and and copper end cap along with epoxy glue. I used a little sand paper to rough up the surface of the cap and glued it to the teacup with the epoxy. I secured it with a few pieces of masking tape. I let it dry overnight.

I thought it would look cute to add some colorful bead accents to the teacup…just for fun! I strung and attached the beads to the teacup with copper beading wire. To finish off the project, I lined the wire cup with with moss, fill it with garden soil and planted the pansies! A perfect garden treasure!

    I think your planter is just adorable and would imagine it was originally hand made for someone to perhaps hold an African violet or other houseplant. Copper was big back in the 70’s, wish I had kept some of the things I had back then.

  10. Oh so pretty!!!! Love it!!!

    Thanks so much for sharing this at The DIY Dreamer! See you tomorrow evening! :)
