7. Make your own heart-shaped tea bags.
Or cat-shaped, or star-shaped, or rhombus-shaped, or whatever shape your tea-loving heart desires. Directions here.
8. Turn old teacups into candle holders.
I did this in my apartment, and although at first my roommates mocked me, now we light them every time we have people over HAHAHAHAHA. Directions here.
12. Or a mug with a pocket cozy.
This is a great knitting pattern for a beginner. Directions here.
13. Or a teacup you painted yourself.
14. Keep your tea close and your cookies closer.
That doesn’t make any sense. Oh well. Available here.
15. Make sure you’re brewing it at the right temperature.
More info here.

You can prolong its life up to a year. This one is available here.

25. Tea-dye an egg.
An incredibly low-key Easter DIY. Directions here.
26. Mustachify your mugs and all who drink from them.
