March Madness #11- {Project Challenge- Pipes}

Hello everyone, and welcome to my March Madness #11! What better way to start wrapping up the twelve days than sharing another Project Challenge?
This month for Project Challenge, the theme is pipes. 
I actually had really been wanting to make one of these for awhile after seeing them on Pinterest. Christy over at Confessions of a Serial DIYer has a wonderful tutorial on this, so I will let you go with hers. 😉
Originally when I told my mom about how I wanted to make a garden teapot, she sent me a brown transferware teapot, knowing I love transferware so much. Moms are the best, aren’t they?!
I couldn’t bare to use it with the risk of it getting thrashed outside since it’s an heirloom, so it still sits on our hutch. 
However, I found a beautiful one that I loved at TJ Maxx for pretty inexpensive. 
I love how it turned out.

This is perfect for my March Madness theme, because I had a couple of teapots laying around the garage. You know how the goal has been to get the garage cleaned up.
I love teapots. 
They are so beautiful. 
I also love to drink herbal tea and caffeine free Chai Tea in all my beautiful teacups. Wonderful treats while watching a good English movie like Sense and Sensibility or Pride and Prejudice
 Anyhow, it probably took me 2-3 trips to the hardware store for the supplies, so I have a few tips to make it easier for you, hopefully:
  1. Make sure your fittings all fit together before you make your purchase and pay, then you won’t be running back later. 
  2. Make sure your glue is compatible to glass and Pipes. (The glue Christy shares is perfect.)
  3. Our Home Depot didn’t carry the crystals, so save yourself some time running around looking for them and buy them at Hobby Lobby with your 40% off coupon if they aren’t already on sale. 
    Once you have all the supplies, it is pretty quick to make, and super simple. 

     I’m glad I finally had the opportunity to make it, I really love seeing it out there in my garden.

     So sweet.
 I will be re-positioning them though, so that the pipes are hidden in the bushes.
I love that the teacup can act as a rain gauge too.
So what do you think, will you be making one this spring?

Come back tomorrow for the last project in my March Madness!
