Pinterest Project #1

I totally love Pinterest and while browsing I find myself thinking "I wish I could do some of these things..." The truth is I am not overly capable when it comes to do-it-yourself projects & I tend to be impatient which doesn't work in my favor. So, I only pin projects I think I can accomplish and I would like to say that today I did my first one!!!

First I purchased a vase from Michael's (which was only $2.99) and bought Krylon white spray paint.

I wrapped rubber bands around it in a more or less random pattern. Now, I would advise to use yarn or something (like they did, but I didn't listen) instead. Because as you will see the rubber bands twist and curve in a certain way that makes it look less classy.


Then I took my spray paint and painted away. Let it dry a bit and then did a little bit more to even it out.


Then I took off the rubber bands and removed some of the flaky stuff.


Put a tea light candle in it and VOILA!


Now, it is far from perfect, but hey I tried and I am totally going to use it!
