I got these babies on my last pick with Vicki. And she gave me this idea also.
With a little paint and imagination....
Now to figure out how I want to display them
Im getting close. Im thinking a Boston Fern might look good hanging over the sides on this one. Ill be scoping out the nurseries now!
I was browsing the clearance asile at Hobby Lobby and came across this glass vase. It was marked down to $6.12. I knew I had something I could use with this so I snagged it up. I also knew that how something looks doesnt mean it has to stay that way.
I bought this can of American Accents Stone spray paint. This stuff is wonderful and comes in many colors! A little on the pricy side for my taste but worth it in the end. I have found that Wal Mart is the cheapest.
I used 2 coats on my glass vase and this is how it came out.
Then to add the foliage
Not too bad....
I needed something to hold my pens, markers, scissors. But I didnt want to go out and buy anything for that. So I came up with this idea
Just clean up an empty container of sour cream, cottage cheese, etc.
I got out the handy dandy mod podge and some scrap fabric
And there you go! So simple! Next time I will use a dark fabric just so you cant see the letters on the container. But noone is really going to pay attention.
