I loves me some Christmas leftovers. I totally do.
Turkey = good.
Boxes of Lindt chocolaty thingies = better.
Plastic candy jars with lids = best.
And if you're thinking "Dude. Really?" then stick with me here...
I picked up three of those guys from the Dollarama before Christmas; I'm guessing they were meant to be used for gifting homemade treats. I, however, have no homemade treat skillz. So I didn't do that with them. Instead I did THIS:
Buh-bye christmas-themed plastic item! Hullo classy frosted glass apothecary jar with year 'round storage usefulness!
And the BEST part about these? All I used to transform them was some nail polish remover and a clean kitchen scrubbie. Which I happened to have on hand. Which means free. Yay for free!
So, I used the nail polish remover and a bit of paper towel to wipe the print off of the plastic. You could totally stop there. That looks like this, see:
Otherwise, grab your clean kitchen scrubbie and rub gently on the surface of the plastic in small circles until you've reached your desired level of opacity (You guys! I LOVE the word opacity. And I hardly ever get to use it.)
If you were feeling kind of fancypants you could mask off some areas with tape (or say, heart shaped stickers to make a VALENTINES candy jar?)
And that's it. Done. I'm using mine as STUFF holders in my bathroom, (yay for unbreakability!)
How are you using your Christmas leftovers?
Oh and I shared over at Melissa's (complete with embarrassing spelling mistake. GAH!)
And over HERE too!
