Today’s post is the second 12 Months of Martha project. It’s a perfect mix of upcycling old things while incorporating new. I am sharing how you can take unused spice containers and turn them into lovely Magnetic DIY Daffodil Planters.
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!
I love this pop of spring. And it’s so versatile that it can sit on the countertop or hang on a fridge!
What have you made with your unused spice containers?
