The gist of this whole deal is to challenge DIYers to actually make something pinned from pinterest.
You can see my past projects here, here, and here. But onto my latest...
I pinned this [a WAY freaking long time ago]:
And actually bought the stuff to make it in FEBRUARY. It is almost November, people. It's about stinkin' time. I have a nasty habit of good intentions. Which means I have an ENTIRE closet FULL of materials purchased for specific [and unfinished] projects. True story.
The source of this lil beaut is from here and Heather does a pretty excellent job at explaining herself and her dollar store craft, so I will spare you the pain of my drowning.
Basically, you just take some dollar store mardi gras beads, paint them, and wire them onto a plant hanging basket. Straight forward and cheap. My kind of jam.
Here's what I ended up with:
And I hung it out on the pergola we built this spring [I still need to blog on that...whoops.]:
I'm loving it! I think it makes our lil backyard nook pretty lovely. I mean like, even teaparty lovely. So if you wanna come tea with me, let's do it!
Pretty sad I waited this long to make it.
Spray paint: Rustoleum's Painter's touch in heirloom white: $3
Planter: From Goodwill: $1
Mardi Gras beads: 6 packs from The Dollar Tree: $6
Wire: I already had: $0
P.S. This vase [pitcher] with the zinnias...
$14.99 at Target. WHAT UP. I'm a little obsessed.
