Shiny Home Decor From Your Garden

4 Materials
4 Hours

While out pruning I saw the the dried stems of what used to be flowers of my Agapathus (Lily of the Nile). My light bulb sparked (as it sometimes does), and for some reason I saw these as silver. In my minds eye I could see silver and aqua.

The dried Agapathus, silver paint, a clear vase and aqua paint. I had everything I needed from previous projects to complete this one and it wouldn't cost me a dime!

I wedged the Agapathus in the flaps of a box and started spraying away with the Rust-oleum Silver Metallic Finish. They only took one coat from every direction possible.

I placed the glass vase over a pole I found. The vase took 2 coats of the Krylon Sea Glass.

Another spark ~ some bling!

I ended up using the rhinestone strips I had leftover from another project.

I can see these for any occasion or celebration. Parties, weddings, practically anywhere, any color ~ for table centerpieces and other decor. Other dried long stemmed floral could be substituted for the Agapathus.Turned out easy and pretty useful for a little Holiday smileeach time I go in the hall bath!To see more photos and find out why my $0 project turned out to cost $1 check out my blog.
