Repurposing is Fun!

If you're reading this post, chances are you already think twice before pitching something in the recycling bin (and you've probably already repurposed a bunch of things!). It's fun and easy to reuse items, especially glass bottles and jars. Here's a snapshot of a few thrift finds and DIY projects I've done in the past few years. Read below for more info.


PAINT + DRIED PLANTS

I painted that first tomato jar white with the plan to use it as a vase. A couple Thanksgivings ago, I needed to add to my centrepiece so I went outside and found some dry grass. I've kept it that way since and it still fits with my decor.


THRIFT FINDS + ARTS & CRAFTS CONTAINER

Whether you hit up Value Village or indie thrift shops, you're sure to find some treasures now and again. I liked this simple grey planter because it goes with my colour palette. I already had these artificial (I know, *gasp*) flowers so I just stuck them in and, voilà, insta decor.


The marble holder was a super find, imo, as it's legit marble, sturdy and perfect alongside my bottles of oils and vinegars on the countertop.


PLANT CLIPPINGS

I am not the best plant-carer. I only have two plants that are thriving at the moment and one is a pothos (if you know anything about plants you know this is THE plant for people like me... people who just can't figure out how to keep plants alive). So, I have this beautiful pothos hanging near a window and every once in a while I trim it and save the clippings. I put some in this repurposed glass tomato sauce bottle with beach glass I've collected the last couple summers (best beach hobby!). Note: I was surprised to find out pothos can keep in just water, no soil required. Whaaa?


What are some of your favourite repurposed DIYs?
