So, what's a mom to do for fun on Spring Break?
I bust out the spray paint when I'm bored. If it's not nailed down, it might get spray painted. The kids have to be careful around me when the warm weather arrives, lest they find themselves coated in Krylon's Gum Drop.
I recently purchased three uuuuuugggly metal mini planters from Dollar Tree for my Girls' Craft Night. They looked like this:
Not so much a fan of the dull brown.
I used some Krylon Blue Ocean Breeze left over from my bunny plaque, and some cheapie WM white spray paint and went to work. (For the record and full disclosure, there was a huge difference in coverage and paint quality! I will be purchasing Krylon for important projects from now on.)
I ended up with these:
What I love about containers like these are their versatility! So many ways you can use little metal planters.
Fill some with candy for a teacher, neighbor, or friend:
Use them to hold utensils at a backyard brunch:
Fill 'em with craft supplies for a night of crafty fun with friends:
- The obvious- drill a few holes in the bottom and plant a few annuals.
- Use them to hold lip glosses, make-up brushes, and eye shadows on your vanity
- Line up some on a child's art center to hold crayons
- Hold tea packets, Splenda, and Keurig packs at a coffee meeting
Any other ideas?
I'm off to look for something else to spray paint. I'll be back tomorrow with the next Session in my Commenting 101 blogging series. We'll be discussing Replying to Comments!
