Personalize Your Tea Ball...

Today I am showing you a simple way to take an inexpensive tea ball and personalize it for yourself or someone you love with charms and jump rings from the craft store. This is so easy to do you won't believe it.

To make your own you will need:
-A metal tea ball with a chain
-Charms (order on Etsy, Ebay or find at your craft store)
-Jump rings (order on Etsy, Ebay or find at your craft store)
-Needle nose pliers

Step one - Assemble all your supplies.
Step two- Use your pliers to open the jump rings wide enough to slide the ring through one of the chains of the tea ball.
Step three- Slide your charm onto the jump ring and close with your needle nose pliers.
Step four- Repeat with as many charms as you would like to use.
* I chose a teapot with tea cup and a book, as it best represents my blog.
Fill your tea ball with 1 tsp of your favorite loose leaf tea...
Or package your newly embellished tea ball with some loose leaf tea, and some of your favorite cookies as a gift for a tea lover you know.

  1. What a great idea, Karen; so cute. But I no longer use teaballs as I discovered those great cup inserts at David's Tea which fill the whole cup and you just dump your tea in, then lift out the insert and it's sooooo easy! I wonder if I could put charms on them.... lol

  2. Pretty projects and great idea,Thank you for the tutorial and for sharing !
