Hey everyone! Happy Wednesday! I flew home from Oregon last night. I have been gone from Hubby for 20 days! Whew! That’s such a long time, isn’t it? It has been the trip of a lifetime across the country and back then up to Oregon. I am truly blessed. Lots of pictures to come in the days ahead of all the sights and adventures from my trip.
But today, I am thrilled to share a simple, yet impacting change for Spring. My DIY Spring Refreshed Urn. Easy peasy and the cost??? Very little. Awesome! Let’s get started…
I found this lovely urn filled with flowers and grass for $5 on clearance at Wal-Mart years ago. SCORE! At the time I purchased it, it fit my style and taste. Now, I have tried fitting in every room in the house, only because I really haven’t found a home for it.
I finally decided to pull it apart and use the urn. I mean it’s a great urn, right? SO, I NEEDED to use it somehow. I think it already looks better.
Using a grapevine orb that I found thrifting for a dollar. I am able to change the whole look of my urn.
What a difference! Placing my “new” orb and urn with other thrifted and vintage components, I created a new, fresh look for spring.
Combining the candlesticks, wheat grass, vintage books tied with twine all sitting in a large wood tray is the exact look I was hoping for.
To finish things off I filled a wire basket with pine cones and the grass from the urn. So cool and great for a Spring look!
It’s funny how I can have something so long, tried using it in every room and FINALLY pulled it apart and found a home for it! I REALLY like when that happens. I was able to change the urn to fit my style, as my style as changed, too. Do YOU have something that you can do the same thing with??
Thanks for joining me today as I shared my Spring Refreshed Urn. It is always a joy for me to share things and I ideas that make me smile.
Make it a wonderful Wednesday!
