:: DIY with My Grand Daughter and Another Birthday!

 

easy peasy repurpose project with jar light 2

I found this jar from an exterior light fixture on the porch when I  was cleaning out some things—taking them off the porch-- 

can’t tell it by these next pictures—but IT’S TRUE! I was!

This is something I’ve seen pinned all over Pinterest--  it’s inexpensive and easy to do.

It was so easy a 5 year old could do.  I got out the paints and brush and just let her “go at it”--

She painted while I scrounged for citronella tea lights, baling wire, and made some place to hang it.

I like how she didn’t cover the glass completely—

and it has a washed-out –somewhat, see- through- look –to -it. easy peasy repurpose project with jar light 2

The hook is a part off a child-size 4 wheeler—it was also lying on the porch.  I’ve never been more happy to have our New Shed--

Our porch was starting to be a collection center for odds and ends and things that BELONG IN A SHED… anyway, having it has given me motivation to clean up and clear out some things. 

I have to be honest—some of the things that are here, ARE HERE, because I see potential in them!

FOR INSTANCE,  this jar, hook/thinging, baling wire and marked down citronella candles from the local DOLLAR GENERAL!

Besides that—look at the fun I had making memories with my grand daughter—I took more pictures but these are the #socialmediapose – pictures I use for blogging and Instagram 

Speaking of Social Media Poses:  Guess who turned 4 years old today?!

Easton-elo 4yrs

“Easton-elo”!  Because all the good ones end in “O”!

Easton was born with a birth defect (though you wouldn’t know it) called Gastroschisis you can read about that here – Gastrochisis Awareness Day is coming up July 30,2014--

You can read about Easton’s (and Our) story here

We are so blessed and grateful to God for HIS healing power!

Til next time, Be Blessed!

What fun! She did a great job painting that light fixture-it makes a great hanging candle holder. Happy birthday to your sweet boy. I am off to read about the defect he was born with. God bless him...and all of you- xo Diana

I love the jar! very vintage look and equally fun craft for the little ones. Gotta love the ninja turtles when they're as cute as this little guy!

I went back and read your story. What a brave daughter you have and what a precious baby boy God blessed you with. I love Psalm 139. Our days were written in His book before one of them came to be. God has a plan for that little fellow.
