Who knew grocery shopping could be the next place to find inspiration for DIY's. With a little imagination and some paint, you could turn just about anything into something fabulous!
Can you see the potential in this Pretzel container? It's large enough to feed all the neighborhood kids for an afternoon snack, but what about a vintage pot to plant your summer succulents in? Have I lost you? lets start by emptying the container...
From here draw a line and cut out bottom part of container to what becomes a bowl shape. Use Copper spray paint and spray paint entire outside of container.
Let spray paint dry and add dark wax to create a patina look.
drill hole into bottom if you plan to use for plants or succulents.
from plastic to copper in minutes!
Suggested materials:
  • Krylon Copper Spray Paint
