Hey, DIY lovers! Do you have some vintage tea cup in your home that you no longer use? If you do, then you better find where it is, because today you will find some inspiration of how to turn it into a garden. We have searched around the Web and have collected several cute tea cup gardens that you will love for sure.

Making a garden into a tea cup is not at all difficult and you can do it no time. First, take the cup and drill a hole in the bottom. This is a must-have because it allows for water drainage. You can do this easily by placing a small scrap of wood under the teacup base and then start drilling with a tungsten-tipped drill. You may consider wearing safety googles to protect your eyes. When you have drilled the hole, fill the bottom of the teacup with small rocks. Then, place the plant and dirt into the cup. And of course, place the cup on the saucer to catch excess water. See now the bunch of tea cup garden ideas that we have chosen for you today and get inspired to make some too. Enjoy!

Besides simply filling the cup with dirt and plant, you can also be creative and make it look like a fairy one. Add some miniature house or some such pieces of furniture, some tiny bridges, artificial mushrooms and even some tiny people statues to make it look more magical. So, no rules at all, just be creative, let your imagination go wild and make some mini fairy garden.

Tea cups can be also perfect planters for succulents. You can choose to plant a single succulent clipping if the cup is smaller, or maybe several of them if the cup is bigger. You can also add some pebbles or rocks and thus create a beautiful centerpiece for your home. Here are several ideas of succulents planted in tea cups.
