I have been trying to reuse as many things as possible in effort to be greener. So in order to make things look alittle more decorative, and I have been covering them. Below are a couple of things that I have re-purposed lately.
This was a jar of spaghetti sauce, now this is a vase. I think that it’s a cute everyday kind of vase, please excuse the flowers these are leftovers from Easter last week and they are on their last legs.
This was a bottle of peppermint mocha iced coffee, it is now a holder for fabric softener sheets in my laundry room. See, I reuse mine (just once) so I needed to a place to hold the ones that have another use in them, and this seemed like it would work.
I make a lot ice tea, and I like it sweet, so I’ve wanted to try making a simple sugar syrup that I could keep in the frig for tea and coffee, so I tried it today (I’ll let you know tomorrow how it works) and used another mocha bottle to store it in the frig.
One last thing for tonight, last week at work they were passing out mini flashlights (guess who got mine?) in these boxes. So I decorated it in the same design as my mothers day cards and will use it to wrap my mom’s present.
So tomorrow I’m hoping to continue with my craft weekend. My plan involves digging my sewing machine out!
Hope you are enjoying the mild weather!
