Give new life to a precious teacup. Turn it into a jewelry holder

Teacups are precious, dainty and beautiful. Many people enjoy sipping from them, but others simply like to look at them. If you're among those who find pleasure in teacups strictly for aesthetics, you can turn them into objects of decor. With this DIY, a teacup becomes an eye-catching jewelry holder. The jewelry accents the cup and becomes a statement piece you can visually relish each day.
If you have a vanity where you do your makeup and don your jewelry, then the teacup is a sweet addition to the space. If you get ready in the bathroom, a lovely teacup can add joy there, too. It also makes a charming gift. Take a set of teacups and make matching jewelry holders for sisters and friends.
