DIY Daffodil Planter supplies,
The first step was painting the spice containers soon to be planters.  I used a flat white spray paint with primer.  It took a few coats to fully cover that bright red.

After the paint was dry, I placed two strips of washi tape along the bottom and painted my thin yellow line.

Next, I cut a thin strip of yellow scrapbook paper using Martha’s paper trimmer.  I have never had a trimmer with such precision, loved it.

After my paper was cut, I applied a thin coat of Matte finish decoupage to my spice container and a thin coat to my paper.  Then, I wrapped my paper around the container and gave it a few more coats to secure.

I also hot.glued a few strong magnets to the back of each container.

While my container was drying, I prepared my daffodils!  I found some mini daffodils at my local Whole Foods and they were the perfect height for this project.  I separated the bulbs outside and shook most of the excess soil off.

After I nestled a few bulbs into each container, I add some additional soil and my daffodils were as happy as could be!
