I'm a big fan of repurposing/ recycling, and so as the weather has been prime for spray painting I made my own soda bottle vases.
I started with Valspar and ended with Krylon. I wasn't crazy about that Valspar color; it was a little too school bus-ish. The Krylon yellow was a little more mustard-y, which is what I was going for here. I know they look like little mustard bottles and you all are thinking, "Where's the ketchup?". I thought the same thing, but once I brought them in they looked a lot less condiment-y. (Apparently I'm the new Webster.)
They're so fun for a kitchen table centerpiece!
I'm slightly obsessed with butterflies at the moment so I used my Martha Stewart butterfly punch to add in a few. The branch I sprayed many moons ago ( I have a bunch of white spray painted branches, and I use them here, there, and everywhere.).
How cute are my little gnomes? I saw this salt and pepper shaker set at a local consignment store (Street Scene) and they followed me home.
I got a little butterfly punch happy and made a wreath using a paper plate. I just cut out a whole in the middle of the plate and taped the butterflies around.
I used the box that the gnome salt and pepper shakers came in to make these butterflies. It's funny how the smallest thing can bring the biggest smile.
These painted soda bottle vases add such a fun vibe, and they make the view from the couch in my family room a little sweeter too.
Have you done any spray painting lately? Anyone else loving mustard-y yellows, butterflies, and gnomes? ......crickets......... It's okay - I'm used to being the odd man out. ;) I think it's fun decorating to the beat of your own drum!
