Simple Vases using Radiant Orchid {Lowe’s Creative Idea}

Radiant Orchid Vases from Recycled Cans & Jars | #upcycling | Pretty Handy Girl

There I was digging things out of the recycling bin again. Pretty Handsome Guy gave me a raised eyebrow, but he knew better than to question my motives. I had that idea bulb flashing over my head, and I was ready to transform some jars and tins. With Springtime just around the corner, it was time to force a little vibrant color into our home. I introduce to you the cheapest way to bring Radiant Orchid color into your décor! If you have recycled jars and tins, you are set!

Materials:

Optional: Gold vinyl stripes or washi tape

Instructions:

Clean out your jars, bottles or tins.

Coat the exterior of your recycled vessel with primer. Allow to dry.

Paint each bottle and tin with radiant orchid paint. Allow to dry. You might need two coats depending on the coverage.

Wrap your tin, jars, or bottles with painter’s tape. Lightly paint primer on the exposed areas. Once dry, add a second coat and remove the tape immediately before the second coat dries.

Once the white primer is dry, outline the white stripes with gold stripes or washi tape for a little blingity bling bling.

Set some fresh flowers or a plant into your containers and enjoy some vibrant Springtime color! (For the metal tins, I put an empty jar inside and/or a plastic bag to keep them from rusting or leaking. That’s my little secret. ;-) )

  1. Brittany, I love this idea. Very pretty. Can I ask where you got the thin gold tape? Thanks.

  2. I love this color & I do believe it’s the Pantone color of the year. I must start saving some containers to use this! Love the post Brittany!

  3. Love this Brittany! I thought about painting a vase or something too- and love your embellishments!!

  4. This is so pretty! It really adds a pop of springtime to this long winter!

  5. I had no idea you could get Pantone colors at Lowes, that is a game changer! I’ve always looked to get the chips or match it, but having them at Lowes will be easy. Great to know.
