Sugar Beads Tea Party

When we received the Twiddleybitz Ornate shelf, I knew it was perfect to display my Sugar Beads instore and at the shows.  I kept it pretty simple though - just painting it pink and then dry brushing white paint over it. Then I glued on some fabric, brought a tea set from Big W for $6.00 and whallah - here is what I came up with ...

My title was made from Twiddleybitz Alpha Squares - covered with Fairy Floss Sugar Beads and sealed with Glossy Accents (yip still wet but the light was fading fast!).

Coffee anyone?
Resting on the saucer is one of our large, silver spoon charms

Here's a yummy cupcake with Flamingo Liquid Pearls for the icing and sprinkles of Fairy Floss Sugar Beads

A Vial Bottle is used as a vase for our pink flowers and turquoise microbeads and hot glue gun for water

Looking down at our Creamy Latte Sugar Beads, Crushed Ice for sugar (with a small spoon charm) and white opal liquid pearls for milk.

The ornate shelf comes with 5 small holes underneath. I used 3 of them to hang 3 tea cups - out of which spill out our scrumptious sugar beads.

There are so many different uses for the ornate shelf. I'm tempted to make a jewellery holder for my DD, or to store my own personal jars of sugar beads (as the front panel of the shelf can be removed to expose 5 sections inside). I'm sure you can come up with many more.
