Create this adorable Cat Teapot, complete with free template!
I get my DIY ideas in lots of ways, but this is the first one I dreamt about. Yep, I actually had a dream about drawing a cute kitty face on a teapot. So clearly it was a sign and I had to make it a reality.

1.Download the template and print out, or freehand your own! Using a soft pencil (I used a 4B) lightly draw out the design on the teapot. Using the print out, practice using the relief paste so you know how much pressure is required. Once you are happy, move on to the teapot. Be careful not to smudge the lines- I found working from left to right (or from right to left if you are left-handed) helped, but keep some kitchen roll/paper towel handy to wipe away any mistakes.
2.Once you are done, put the teapot somewhere safe and dry to cure. Times will vary depending on the brand, the Marabu one I used takes three days to fully harden and is then dishwasher safe. No baking in the oven required! Use the eraser to remove any visible pencil lines and you are done. Now go make a nice pot of tea to celebrate!
