DIY Poppy Teapot

Ahhhh… SPRING IS SO HERE!!!!  I am definitely in a floral type of mood. You might recall my last little thrift store expedition where I came back with lots of goodies, including this plain little Japanese teapot with a wicker handle.  Adorable as is, right?   But I had a vision for this little pot… and it involved poppies!

First, my disclaimer:  I cannot draw to save my life!  Amazing images pop into my head but for some odd reason, they translate into scribbles on paper.  Ugh! So I always need to find simple images that I can replicate.  Off to Pinterest I went! And taa-daa!!!  Here’s my inspiration for this project:

It’s a Poppy Sleepsack made by Pure Pixie on Etsy. So gorgeous, right? I am absolutely in love with everything in this store… And those poppies inspired me to no end!!!

Is used Marvy Uchida DecoColor Opaque Paint Markers that I found at Michael’s.  They come in a pack of 6 and are relatively inexpensive.  They are made to paint on glass, paper, wood, clay, porcelain, stone, metal and mirrors.  Super simple, super fast!  Their colours are bright, vibrant and glide on smoothly.  No, I do not work for Marvy… I just dig these markers ’tis all!

Here she is half way through the project…

And finally all decked out in pretty poppies! Simple and sweet.

Sooooooo happy that spring is here and that the snow has melted!  Have a great sunny week!

P.S. Sharing this post over here and, as well as at the Pinterest Challenge Spring Edition!

A zillion thanks to the amazing ladies who featured my painted little teapot on their blogs!!!
