You can find these candy holders cheap at almost any thrift store.
I paid 50 cents for each of these . (I know what you are thinking -big spender- rigghhtttt!? )
I have been wanting to make pots out of them for my porch. So I spray painted them both white.
They weren't bad, but they weren't right either.
I was SURE I wanted them to be white, but they just looked chintzy to me. So I decided to spray them again using a Hammered Rust-oleum spray paint.
WOW -- that made all the difference.
Once they were painted and dry, I drilled a few small holes in the bottom and planted some mums in them!
OH, I am loving them!
Seriously, this $1.00 transformation was well worth it!
