How to Diy a cute vase from an empty tin can, paintsticks, and jute.

This is such a fun do it yourself vase project.

Near our cabin, there is a grocery store/hardware/store/hunting store. When we first bought the cabin, we were told to check it out. They are also known nationwide for their jerky. Of course, I could care less about that. You might as well eat leather.

Anyway, they have the coolest little paint sticks. They are smaller than what you get at the big home improvement stores. I’ve been dying to do something with them so when I had an empty tin can, the taller ones from the larger size pork ‘n’ beans, I knew I had to combine them. I love DIY’ing anything. I really like unique DIY vases from all sorts of discarded items.

First, I stained the stick with whatever stain I had laying around.

Then I hot glued them onto the tin can.

I added jute, plopped in some artificial greens from Hobby Lobby, and voila’, a cute DIY vase. Of course, you could also use fresh flowers.

I might do another one and paint the sticks. Wouldn’t they look pretty in different pastels and then pop some spring-flowering stems in them?

It’s that time of year to turn all crafty and everything.

But I wish I were easier DIY project for God. I mean sometimes I wonder if God muses and says, “I wonder if I’ll get her done”.

Do you ever wonder that about yourself? I mean do you get discouraged when you feel like your spiritual growth is moving slower than a snail on the way to the Ark? I sure do.

But aren’t we glad, that it’s all from our perspective and never God’s? He has the patience of, dare I say it, Job?

God bless and have a good day.
