I hate throwing stuff out..especially things that feel like they could be other things..
Like those little glass yogurt pots that you get in the supermarkets now. I have them all over my house, I use them for paper clips, thumb tacks, cotton buds, stamps..but with Christmas and Thanksgiving around the corner I thought I’d share another favourite use for them..
As tea light holders! It’s ridiculously easy I promise.
Step one: Buy and eat some yogurt..So far so good right?
Step two: Wash and dry your pots and grab some spray paint. I love the “Universal” range by Rustoleum because it basically goes on everything and the trigger is really comfortable to use (for real…I don’t do discomfort).
Step three: Tape off where you don’t want paint. I use Frog Tape for everything because it gives a clean line but masking tape will do too.
Step four: Cover the ground and surrounding areas with an old sheet or towels and spray away according to the instructions on your paint of choice.
Tip: If you put the pots upside down onto a bottle, it makes it easy to spray all sides in one go because you just rotate the bottle. Light easy stokes are all you need.
Step five: Once they’re throughly dry (I like to leave them for a few days) remove the tape and admire your handy work.
You can either use them as they are, or add a little somethin’ somethin’.
(If your lines are a bit wonky, Washi tape is your friend because it covers any fuzzy paint lines)
As it’s suddenly winter, I thought I’d go for a ‘Rustic Lux’ vibe with tape and twine.
And that’s it! Pop in some tea lights and you’re all set!
Told you it was easy peasy x
