Design Your Own DIY Mother’s Day Teacup Garden

Step 1: Draw a fun design on your teacup and saucer using the oil-based paint pens. Some design ideas: 1. Let your kid color his own for his grandma; 2. Label each cup with your fave tea flavor and then plant the herb; 3. Create a modern, geometric design.

Step 2: Pop into a preheated 400° oven and bake for 20 minutes. Let cool.

Step 3: Fill your teacup with a layer of rocks to help keep the water from rotting the roots, and pot your plant.

Step 4: Give to someone you love.
