Trash to Treasure, Easter Flower Display
Alright guys, this week is a milestone for me, two posts in one week - wow. I'm really getting on my craft game now that it's turning into spring outside. This project is one of the easiest I've ever done, so if you don't have a crafty bone in your body...you too can complete this one! It's simple and for me it was virtually free. The whole project start to finish took about 1 hour. So go clean out your fridge and let's get started!
1.) Cleaned glass jars, Pickle jar, salsa, jar, and pasta sauce jar - Free from the frigdge.
2.) Food Coloring, I'd recommend using NON NEON colors as mine were a bit bright for my liking.
3.) Sponge Brushes
4.) Tub to mix glue with food coloring
5.) Mod Podge
6.) Flowers (I got mine from Sam's)
Total Cost for the whole project - $10.00 flowers at Sam's was it I had all the rest!
Repeat this easy process with all of the jars you wish to paint. Let them dry for about 2 hours and your project is almost finished!
I cut the stems of each flower at varying lengths to give the jars some height and made sure to blend the colors so each jar had a good assortment of beautiful flowers.
Make sure to check my blog next week - I'll be making a spring wreath over the weekend. Michael's had a 50% off sale on grape vine wreaths and assorted flowers so of course you know I bought a cart full! Seriously though the wreaths they try to sell at the craft stores always look really tacky in my opinion and you better bet I can make one for less than $60-$80 dollars!
