With snow falling steadily around, I am constantly looking for ways to bring a little bit more greenery into my house. For me, it really helps stave off the winter blues and I love having plants around. Who says you have to keep your plants in boring planters? When I received my The Leaf Reader box from LitJoy Crate and saw the Tea Cup Planter inside, I feel completely in love with it. My grandma used to plant in tea cups all the time, what makes these DIY planters even better is that since they are made for planting, they are easier to use than any old dish.

Harry Potter Teacup Planter
First paint the front half of your tea cup in a peach color. Allow the peach to dry and then paint a large black zig zag around the top of the cup, this will be Harry’s hair. On the saucer, paint Harry’s scarf with red and yellow squares interchanging.
Add the lighting bolt by the hair line and then paint his glasses on his face by painting two circles and a semi circle connecting them. Paint his eyes, with a green center.

Platform 9 3/4 Tea Cup Planter
Add a 2 inch vinyl circle or sticker to the center or you tea cup. Paint your entire tea cup a nice shade of red. It will probably take a few coats to get the teacup a deep red color. After the teacup is completely dry, peel the stick off the tea cup and you will have a white circle left where you can label the cup.
If you don’t have a way to cut vinyl, simply paint a black line around the edge of the circle and paint 9 3/4 in the center. If you do have a cutting machine, cut the numbers out on your machine and use transfer tape to place them on the cup. If you need specific instructions for how to do this, you can find them here.
