I found these little tea caddies a long time ago. I really wasn't sure what they were at first, but I thought they were interesting and unique so I bought them. They have been in a box in my art room at home for a long time. Then one day I was looking at Pinterest and I saw some pretty tea bags sewn out of fabric. I thought something like that would look neat hanging from the tea caddies. Then I decided to take a tea bag that I had used from Might Leaf Tea Co. I emptied the tea bag after I used it and added a vintage picture to the inside. It looks so pretty hanging on the caddy! I added a little decorative paper to the top of the tea bag and that was it.
Here is my side note! If you want the best hot tea ever try Mighty Leaf Chamomile Citrus Tea. I had some in California about 10 years ago and I was hooked! You can order it online and the tea comes individually wrapped in the most beautiful tea bags. Now you can drink this wonderful tea and make a little piece of art with the tea bag when you are through! They have lots of great teas, but this is my favorite!
I'm an art teacher and junk lover! I like to hunt for and repurpose treasures from flea markets, old barns, yard sales and funky shops.
