13. Update Your Vases
Turn a boring vase into beautiful and modernistic home decor with just spray paint and these instructions from Two Twenty One— Love, love!! I have so many old vases that I just can’t seem to part with, and now I’m so happy that I’ve been hoarding them all these years! You can also find vases at thrift stores for just a buck or two.
14. Re-purposed Canisters
I always feel so guilty throwing away those sturdy, thick plastic canisters that are sold with nuts, trail mix, cookies, etc., and now I’ve been inspired to keep just about every single one of them, because just look at what you can do with them! These would also be great re-purposed for craft supplies and other small trinkets (like in the garage for screws and nails). Even better, make them pretty with spray paint and labels! Check out the details here.
15. DIY Starburst Ornaments
Spray paint and straws? Yes! For this project, use a zip tie to tightly hold together about 2 dozen straws. One by one, pull the straws out to form a “starburst”, and spray it with spray paint in the color of your choice. Because they are light weight, they can simply rest in an indoor tree, but for outdoor use or to hang elsewhere as a decoration, staple fishing wire on the end of one of the straws to form a loop.
I could not find step-by-step instructions for this– arg! But for the most part, I think the picture says it all. 🙂
