I Call these China Swags. They can be hung above a window, door, picture, mirror or all by themselves.
This project was submitted by a reader, Cindy. She made this fountain out of old china for her Garden.
China Cup Organizer
You'll need to have access to a Tile Wet Saw for this project. Other than that, it uses materials you'll be familiar with.
This is a multi step project, on the medium to hard end of the scale. Only because it requires you to use the wet saw, and to cut a piece
of wood. If you can conquer those two things, then you can create your own wonderful China Cup Organizer with these instructions.
Jewelry made from Broken China Pieces
Pendant made from 2 broken cup handles
These are wall pockets made from 1/2 cups and 1/2 plates. I use them for business cards in my
booth. They could also hold flowers etc.
The back plate in this little collage, has a huge chip out of it. By hanging another plate in front of it
with a cup dangling from a sweet ribbon. I've hidden the flaw and made it something I can display again.
Take a look at this beautiful plate Collage that Linda did above an arch window in her beautiful home.
And she made this beautiful Teacup Chandie for her "girlie" office
I used little china chips to make the Stained Glass for this birdhouse
I saw this plate project at a local antique shop

If you don't have little hooks on your fixture, you could use ribbon to tie the teacups from the light.
