Easy Update



Just a quick, easy project here. Maybe I'm procrastinating the harder ones? There are so many things I want to finish, but just need one or two things to do it, and it's holding me up. This one started with an old Glade candle jar that we were using as a pencil holder. (Tell me I'm not the only one who cleans out & saves candle jars?) This is what it looked like:


Add some primer.



Some yellow spray paint and some colorful clothesline from the Dollar Tree, and voila... much cuter!

So cute! I usually reuse them as votives. I love that yellow and green, so summery!

Hey Wendy. Nope, you're not the only one. They just seemed to worthy of more to throw out, but I've never done anything so simple and cute with them. I'm with Eva, I really love the color combination. I'm working on Red, Green and yellow for my porch now.

Have a blessed Sunday. Hugs...Tracy :)

I love yellow and green. What a great idea. I keep them all but never do any thing with them. I am going to start looking at them in a new way. Dumb question-Did you use spray primer?
