Anyway, I brainstormed a few other possibilities and decided that this is a fun, cute springy idea that is super cheap and so easy anyone can do it and I'm sure you wouldn't even have to go and buy anything! Just look around and raid your stash and you can totally throw this little project together.
Mine started off with a little basket I got at the thrift store for 50 cents.
I cut the orange straps off with a razor knife cause they HAD to go! Then I sprayed on a coat of primer, and used a green spray paint over that. Once that dried I used some brown paint and dabbed some on in random places to create kind of a rust look on it.
Then I put some decorative rocks in the bottom. I have a bunch of these around my house, but they also sell them at the dollar store if you want some on the cheap.
Anyway, easy easy, that's why there's no pics of that process. ANYONE can spray paint right!?
So for the first way to use this I decided to put a glass candle votive directly in the center and layer the rocks all around it.
The candle votive was one I already owned.
For the second way I used this, I simply swapped out the candle for a small decorative planter. This is also something I had at home, and just re-purposed in a fun new way.
This would also look really cute with a bird and nest inside, or a small garden statue... maybe a little Buddha would be cute!
Anyway, it's a quick and simple project that cost almost nothing! Have a great weekend :)
