Add some amazing, cute and chic flair to your kitchen or dining area with this tissue paper tea set. This tea set will add a pop of color to your living space. This DIY tutorial comes from the wonderfully creative people at Brit + Co. Materials For this project, you will need: -- A plain white tea set (you can find them for cheap online here and here) -- Tissue paper -- Dishwasher safe Mod Podge -- Scissors -- Foam brush -- Porcelain pens You can find the majority of these items at a craft store. Cut out the tissue paper Use the scissors to cut out the tissue paper into small triangles. You can cut them into a few different sizes to add a little more variety to your project. Apply the tissue triangles to the tea set Use the foam brush to apply a layer of Mod Podge to the tea set wherever you want to have the triangles. Then, place the tissue paper triangles on the Mod Podge-covered tea set. Then, apply another layer of Mod Podge over the tissue paper. Be careful — the tissue paper tears easily when applying the Mod Podge over it. Add detailing to the top of the teapot Use the ceramic pen to add detailing to the top of the teapot.
