Wait till you see my apple juice containers

I’m re-posting some pics of past DIY projects. I will be doing this all week. Hoping it might help you in case you need some inspiration.

You’re busy and I’m busy. (At least I hope I’m going to be well enough to be busy preparing for Thanksgiving.)

As usual I apologize for the lack of quality pictures.

My daughter-in-law had these adorable round plastic apple juice containers that I begged her to give me. She’s really good about saving me all kinds of “stuff”. Last week she brought me two great white cabinet doors I can’t wait to do something with.

Anyway, I had these adorable plastic juice containers and lots of pallet wood from a niece whose husband keeps me well-supplied.

What to do? What to do?

I had seen these great mason jars attached to pallet boards that I really liked. So I thought, why not these plastic containers? It was a challenge to figure out how to attach the plastic containers to the wood. So I’ll explain as I go along.

First. I spray painted the empty container With Rustoleum, aqua blue. Then distressed with sandpaper.

I got this:

The next step was figure out how to attach them to my pallet board.blue juice container

Bingo!

I simply hammered in a nail and used a box cutter to make a small slit in the back of the bottle then just pushed on the bottle. I made sure the slit was smaller than the nail as I wanted them to be secure.

Then all I did was space them on the board attach the rest of them and add the artificial gold twiggy-leafy thingees.”  I love it as does everyone else. You could use any plastic container that is thin enough.

Here’s the final product.
