    teacup night lights--need help! also light switch plates?

    Hello, I'm new here, so please forgive me if I am repeating an earlier query. I have fallen in love with the teacup night lights that I've seen made out of (real) vintage porcelain teacups and saucers. But I'm a novice when it comes to crafting. Can anyone provide advice on how to make these? (Ie, how to cut the cup, how to affix it to the night light--I assume that you can use the "generic" ones you buy at Home Depot?, etc.? Also, I am interested in making some light switch plates using vintage wallpaper and was wondering what kind of adhesive is best? And whether I should use sealant or lacquer over the wallpaper? Thank you in advance!!!!

    Not that this is any help but I googled and went through many pages and couldn't find any directions so I am hoping someone will come to the rescue. My big question is how people cut the teacups in half. Hope some one can help us. I would love to make some of these for Christmas (too poor to make them for Mother's Day.)

    Two of the people in my on-line journal (see link above) actually came up with some suggestions, maybe they would work? Let me know if you try it!

    You should be able to have someone at a tile shop cut the teacups in half with a wet tile saw. I would use a clear silicone glue to attach the cups to the nightlight. Hope that helps, cute idea!
