Flower Cups are porcelain cups with adhesive, colorful flower appliques attached.
The appliques I used are durable plastic with a glitter-like texture. They’re pretty and can be used for drinking. Also great use as a holder for pens and paper clips. Looks nice on a desk.

After decorating my bathtub with adhesive, colorful flower appliques (they prevent slipping) and loving the look, I decided to purchase some more for DIY projects.
Dollar General, Dollar Tree and Walmart have inexpensive porcelain cups.
Secopad Bathtub Non-Slip Flower Appliques are available on Amazon.
The appliques add a dash of flair to plain cups.
Wash and towel dry porcelain cup(s) before attaching flower applique.
Next, peel paper from back of each applique and place on cup. Rub until smooth (no wrinkles in the flower).
These decorated cups must be hand washed instead of placing in a dishwasher for cleaning. Allow to drip dry or towel dry.
I got the idea to decorate potholders in 2017. While looking at a batch I purchased from Dollar Tree, they seemed plain.
On a whim, I decided to jazz up some inexpensive potholders by attaching fabric flowers. Sew on or attach pins. New ideas flowed. A small sample is shown on this page. More to come!
Frame in a shadow box and hang on a wall in a kitchen, home office, family room, hallway or wherever you like.
Consider securing silk flowers with pins because they’re easy to remove. Perfect for when you want to change the design.
Although a frame is not required for a short term display, please know the potholders will accumulate dust after awhile.
Consider framing in a shadow box if you plan to display on a wall for a long time. The potholders will remain crisp and clean.
I purchased fabric flowers, earrings and gold ribbon for $1 each from Dollar Tree. The lovely potholders were 2 for $1. Who else loves a bargain?! Comment below.
Purchased the awesome shadow box (8×8) from Joann Fabric and Craft Store. It was on sale for $7.50.
