The Nut Cup

Well, my version of the nut cup.


Inspired by Julie's nut cups, I decided to give it a try. Yep, I have never made nut cups before now. And, I'm probably the only one in blogland who hasn't. And, mine are not exactly traditional nut cups.


When I went into my local craft store to get the cups, they were out. So I improvised.


I found these darling little tea light votives and thought they would make cute cups.


*Sigh*
I love Spring.

Oh how beautiful!!! Looks like it should at a table with everyone dressed in pretty pastel Easter finery. I'm sure the votive candle cups are prettier than the nut cups. Great job!

Everything you do is so SWEET! I love your style & color choices. I'm right there with you. Thanks for sharing & I think your nut cups are cuter than most. Aren't you glad they were out. Charlene
