Old Clay Pots transformed into a Chic Tea Set

Create a beautiful new play "tea set" from a few old stained clay flower pots and saucers with just a few scraps of stiffened fabric or leather pieces glued on (for handles and a spout) and a wooden bead for the "lid".  Decorate with painted or vinyl flowers & leaves, and seal with a clear finish coat, sprayed or brushed on.  Note:  this teapot, cup & saucer hold only pretend liquid refreshment for obvious reasons, but is fitting for the very daintiest of tea parties.  So slip into your finest gowns & slippers little ladies, bring on some tasty treats, get those pinkies in the air, and let the party begin!
