Because of this one of my favourite ‘DIY’ (I use the term loosely) things to do is paint jars with white paint. No joke, you should try this as it is amazing – you don’t even just have to use white! Staying within this vein I recently discovered a new old kitchen object that looks amazing smothered in paint.
Like pretty much every girl in my age bracket I love candles. My room is full of large jar candles, little decorative candles, and I also have a large collection of tealights. Tealights are cheap and cheerful, but I’m not a massive fan of having them spread about the room loose as I feel like they don’t look so great (and I often worry I might accidentally put something next to them that will set on fire!). That’s why I am absolutely in love with these tealight wall holders made from empty tuna tins.
The potential for making these more exciting is also huge. If you are more artistic than I am you can put any sort of design on, or you could wrap them in ribbon or lace. Plus you have unlimited possibilities for how to display them on the wall; I am in my uni house at the moment and we have zero tools at our disposal so it is currently affixed with white tack (Health and Safety freaks, yes I know, I will not be leaving them unattended). But if I take a few home with me I will poke some holes in them so that I can either hang them down with some pretty strings or pin them into the wall.
As I (or my housemates) get through more tuna in the upcoming year I will for sure be making more of these, possibly incorporating some sort of hanger/mobile design which might look a bit more fancy than this picture. I will most likely put a picture on twitter if I do get it completed so feel free to follow me @GRTBlog.
Hope you had a Wonderful Wednesday!
