Fairy tea set

Gather some acorn caps and create a shimmering tea set perfect for fairy tea parties and little hands.

What you'll need

  • 2 Large acorn caps and one small acorn cap
  • Gold paint
  • Wood or cardboard (3 x 2 inches)
  • Felt in two colors (3.5 x 1.5 inches and 0.5 x 0.5 inches)
  • Modeling clay or bees wax (optional)
  • Needle and thread
  • Hot glue gun
  • Scissors
  • Sandpaper

How to make it

  1. Sandpaper and acorn caps

    Select two large acorn caps that are similar in size and one smaller cap. Lightly sand the ­­­­­caps so they are stable.

  2. Gold paint and acorn caps

    Paint the inside of the acorns with gold paint. Let dry.

  3. Cut felt

    With the largest piece of felt, cut two 0.75 x 0.25 inch strips and two 1.5 inch diameter circles. To make the flower saucer, cut 8 notches in the circle and round the edges of each segment. Repeat for the second saucer.

    Cut two leaves out of the smaller felt.

  4. Making the teacup handle

    Using a hot glue gun (adult supervision required), glue the strips of felt onto the two large acorn caps to form handles. Let dry.

  5. Felt leaf, thread and beeswax

    Cut a 2 inch strand of thread and knot one end. Using the needle, attach the thread to the felt leaf. Cut the thread to 0.75 inches. Repeat for the second leaf.

    To form the tea bags, use modeling clay or beeswax (shown) to create a tiny tea bag around the end of the leaf thread. You can also cut out a piece of paper and glue it to the thread. Let dry.

    Make a little spoon out of modeling clay, beeswax or cardboard. 

  6. Assembled tea set

    Use a 3 x 2 inch wooden board (shown), or cut cardboard to size. Assemble the fairy tea service and invite your favorite fairies to a tiny tea party!
