When I saw this sweet teeny tea set in the Dollar Store I thought of what pretty tea set ornaments they would make. I love the delicate pink flower painted on each piece.
It could be a fun way to preserve a tea set once loved by a little girl who no longer uses it.
The ornaments were simple to make, and only needed time for the glue to dry before they were ready to add fishing line to hang.

How to Make Tiny Tea Set Ornaments.
1. Remove the set from the package and match lids to bottoms and cups to saucers.
2. Put a small glob of glue on the bottom of each cup and press it firmly to the center of each saucer.
3. Put a thin line of glue around the inside edge of each lid and attach it firmly to its bottom half.
4. Allow the set a few hours to dry.
5. Cut 10 or 12 inch long pieces of nylon fishing line to string through the handle of each piece, and tie a knot at the end.
The tea set ornaments are ready to be hung.
If you can’t find a tea set in the Dollar Store, you may find one in Walmart or Target.
This tea set is ceramic, so you would need to use care not to break it.

This is a neat idea. I make ornaments each year for my grown children and this would make a neat one for my daughter. Now you must come up with something for my son.
Okay.. but you need to tell me a little about your son’s interests! :0)
I have looked high and low and can not find a tiny tea set, ceramic or otherwise HELP
I’ve had my tiny tea set for a while, and I found it at a 99 cent store. Also, I found a garland of tiny tea set pieces at Christmas time a couple of years ago – in Hobby Lobby. Check, too, in the cheap toy section of Target and Walmart. Good Luck!

I’m going to my neighborhood Big Lots tomorrow to see if I can find a tea set! Really cute!

I found a bag with pieces of two tiny tea sets at a flea market for $2. When my 5 year old tires of playing with it, we will put it on the tree. Until then, I will hang up the tiny tea pot that belonged to my mom.
How nice – to have that wonderful antique from your Mom to hang on the tree!
