But it meant I was able to take these three glass vases, shown to the left, outside, and spray paint them in spring pastels.
I was very surprised that they ended up just looking like pottery vases .... I have had the three for sale at the shop for what seems like forever ... and thought I would make use of them at home.
Then I later added some eggs also from the dollar store, and liked the whimsy ...
Since I used the ends of spray paint cans I had on hand, and the vases I already owned, the center peice set me back a whole 2 dollars, and I still have most of the eggs and Easter grass left over for other projects!!
Not sure how my holiday mantel will turn out, but for now the left over pinks from Valentines, with the green bunnies, seems to tie in nicely with the pastel vases.
