For this project, you'll need a set of glass salt & pepper shakers from the Dollar Tree, black chalkboard paint (spray or brush-on...either will work), acrylic paint (I used Americana's Sea Glass), paint brush, sand paper, hot glue gun & accents (ribbon, paper flowers, etc.).

I removed the lids and applied a coat of black chalkboard paint. Once this was dry, they were painted with a coat of acrylic paint in the shade of Sea Glass. A little more dry time followed by roughing up the edges with sand paper and you have yourself some adorable miniature vases! Ribbon and paper flowers were glued on for fun and some wildflowers were picked for the finishing touch.

        We decorated these with craft tape and ribbon, and filled with red, pink & white M&M's for Valentine's Day. Tied a cute tag on the that says "Sprinkle it with L❤️VE". My daughter gave them to 5th grade classmates for Valentine's Day.
