Plain to pretty

My mom bought Natalie a tea set from Ikea a couple years back.  
It's all white, which to Natalie translates as "not pretty".  :-)

I think the tea set is adorable the way it is but I figured I would try to see if there was a way to transform it that was quick and easy.  Then I remembered there are rub on stickers for ceramics etc.  So off we went to Michaels.  Natalie picked out the purple and pink sparkly flower rub ons. (which btw were only 99cents!). 
And once the girls were in bed I got to work and the tea set went from plain... pretty in about 20 minutes. 

 Such a fun, easy, and quick craft! (not to mention cheap!)

Let's get this party started, linking up to these parties:
