Chalk Board Tea Pot

A friend gave this lovely tea pot shaped chalk board from Typo for my birthday.

It's pretty and a great kitchen decoration but quite pricey. I decided to try and make my own. Thin wooden tea pot bases (which are sold for mosaics) are available at art and some hardware shops, I bought mine at a stall a Hobby X. Chalk board paint is now available in a variety of colours and brands. The great thing about making these yourself is the options when it comes to colours. For the twine/string to hang the pot from I used the handles from a fancy shopping bag.

I have given a few of these as gifts and people have really liked them. They are lovely kitchen or bedroom decorations.
