Sisters Kirstin and Jordan from kojodesigns put this beautiful wreath together out of stuff they found in their kitchen and recycling bin. I love the idea of organizing your teas visually like this – it allows you to enjoy the colorful varieties of tea, and also helps a visual person choose which tea she wants to drink. Plus, you can change out the look of the wreath depending on the tea sachets you choose. My parents have a coffee bar in their kitchen so guests can come and make any hot drink of their choice anytime. This would be such a cute decoration above the coffee bar, or anywhere in your kitchen. Wouldn’t this be a fun Mother’s Day gift for your tea-loving mothers?

What a great idea. My husband is a tea drinker and I’m totally making this for him.
this is my fave craft i have seen so far!!!
ooohhhh! I like it!! Perhaps I should forward to a certain daughter I know….

This is so cute and functional. Two things I look for most in a craft!
Saw this and thought it was the seed packet wreath found here: http://livelifecreateart.blogspot.com/2010/04/my-latest-obsession.html
What a great twist with packets of stuff…or this could be a fun advent wreath too – with a little notecard for each day.
Thanks for posting!
I actually made this for a friend of mine. She was staying with her young daughter in the hospital, and I thought it would be cheery decoration as well give her plenty of tea to drink.
This is a really wonderful idea! Cool way to clean up the messy tea basket that everyone paws through. Hmmm- where will we put ours?
Yes, heather! This would definitely be a great idea for all kinds of drink packets! I am thinking especially at Christmas time when you could make a wreath of hot cocoa, hot cider, peppermint tea, Holiday coffee….
Great idea! thanks for sharing.
This is a great idea for a cute gift. I can’t wait to make one.
Excellent idea with many potential applications. Like…bath items (scrubies, bath salt packets, etc) or herbs (fresh or packets of dried) or even (excuse me) “male prophylactic items.” (Why I thought of that I don’t know.)
I took this as inspiration to make a flower to pin the teabags to instead! I’m having trouble figuring out how to hang it up since it doesn’t have a hole in the center but it would also just make a great centerpiece lying flat.
I saw that on their site and absolutely love it. I wish I knew a tea drinker just so I could make this! I stumbled you!
So beautiful and practical!
What a wonderful idea! We have a women’s tea that we do in May (for Mother’s Day) and this would be the perfect gift for a drawing!! Thanks for sharing this simple but elegant idea. I think I’ll make one for my kitchen – May is such a long ways a away…
This is such a great idea! I love tea…and this looks so easy to make, thanks for the great idea!
Hi Heather! I’ve put together a round up of nifty kitchen projects on Craft Gossip today and included your post. :) You can see it here
I think this idea is absolutely adorable. A few weeks ago, I was sitting and waiting forever on the AT&T guy to install my cable and decided to make one myself. I used a dinner plate at the base and luckily had all the materials on hand. Very easy and fairly quick to make! If you don’t have a hot glue gun on hand, I definitely recommend using Mod Podge over traditional glue!
I made this using artist trading cards I didn’t know how to display and I LOVE IT! Thank you for the idea!

This is such a cute idea! I absolutely love how easy it would be to repurpose it again. Plus you can pick out different coloured teas to make it fit different seasons or themes.
