Pour your paint and hold the lid pieces in your hand and paint. Let those dry before adding a few more coats
I set the lid on the ground and paint the top edge. It will take a few coats. Let dry in between.
Paint the ball green…
Grab 1 small candle cup
Paint it brown. This will be the apple stem.
While those are all drying start painting the base metallic black.
Hot glue the candle cup and the faux leaf onto the green ball.
Then grab your twine, paint pen and tag!
Write your school mascot nicely on the tag.
Once it is all dry, have fun giving it to your child’s new teacher or keeping it for your kids’ treat jar for good grades or an after school treat!
Thanks Teryn!! That’s such a fun idea for teachers, or like you said, for after school incentives for the kids. Helping the teacher (and students) show school spirit is such a smart idea!
Teryn is so creative. I love her blog, Vintage Romance Style. Here are some projects of hers that I think are amazing, and I’m sure you’ll love them too.
And, this restoration hardware knock off is SO pretty. Follow her tutorial for making this beautiful DIY Crystal Orb Chandelier.
