I was just about to dump this pickle jar last week when inspiration hit.
I gave it a couple of coats of robin's egg blue spray paint. Once that was dry, I added a chalkboard paper tag. It's kind of small so I really had to squeeze in the word fleurs on there.
Add some faux flowers from the Dollar store and voila, instant pickle jar vase! Definitely my speed on these scorching summer days we've already been having.
