A few days ago Melissa at 320 Sycamore did a post on sprouting wheat grass inside. It reminded me: Every year I tell myself I'm going to do this early enough to enjoy with my spring decor...
And every year I forget to do it again. (Very similar situation for the spring bulbs I never manage to plant in the fall!)
I went to my local grocery and spent $1.49 on some instant gratification.
I took an old tin I had sitting with my flower pots, etc out in my Scary Spray Paint Area in our side yard. The tin was dirty. I didn't even properly clean it, I just kind of brushed away some of the dust with my hand. Then I shot it with a coat of apple green paint.
It looked OK, but not quite right. I took the last little bit of aqua spray paint left in the can and used that over the top of the green.
I am not kidding that I had a W cut onto contact paper that was laying around, so I slapped that onto the front of the tin. Ta-Da!
Simple and fast. Definitely faster than sprouting my own. It looks nice next to my latest Dollar Store find as well.
