Is your kitchen cabinet filled with a mish-mash of teacups and coffee mugs that you have stopped using? Rather than letting them gather dust, bring out these unloved pieces and upcycle them into useful articles so that they get the attention they deserve! Here are three artistic ways to repurpose old cups and mugs.


1. Use them as Herb Planters

Tea cups and mugs are of the perfect size for planting herbs. All you need is some small rocks, potting soil and herb seeds. Just add the rocks at the bottom, a layer of soil on top of that and plant seeds in the soil. Water the seeds daily, and enjoy the beautiful result of your toil.
