Upcycle a Pepper Shaker With Succulents

I just can't help myself when it comes to upcycle projects. I love transforming something unusual into something extraordinary. Take, for example, a tin ground pepper container.
Yes, I boiled it. It's the easiest way to loosen up the adhesive to remove the top.
I was able to take advantage of an unseasonable warm late winter day to spray paint a few thin coats of white.
Then I jazzed my little container up with washi tape, foam and succulents, and magnets on the back.
The end result: a great DIY magnetic succulent planter to keep my other fridge magnets company! Click the link below to read the full tutorial and see other upcycle craft projects on my blog!
