Tea cup and saucer
How I did it
Use a cheap fork and bend it at the prongy part.
Put a good amount of glue on to saucer using the glue gun.
Press the prongy end of the fork into the glue on the saucer and then smother some more glue on top until it feels secure.
Next glue the cup to the other end of the fork on the inside of the cup (you may need to sand away some of the glaze on cup to help it stick)
I bought sprays of flowers from Country Baskets, pulled them apart and glued them on the saucer and fork.
If it doesn’t balance, stick UK 2 pences to the part of the fork that’s stuck to the saucer (or any small heavy coin if not from UK)
Here is another floating tea cup I made using a larger cup
I work long hours so my way of relaxing is crafting. I give all different crafts a go as can’t stick to any in particular. I’ve the attention span of a gnat lol. My crafts are mainly for around my home or for friends. Sometimes if I see something I like I give it a go and more often than not I succeed. I won’t be defeated no matter how long it takes me.
