I made this easy DIY craft out of salt shakers, which are just the right size for holding a few flowers each.

I love bringing flowers inside in the spring, it is such a great way to enjoy the season. But I don’t want to cut all the flowers in the yard, I just want to bring a few stems inside to decorated the kitchen table. So I wanted to make some small bud vases, and a simple salt shaker or a spice jar is the perfect size.

I bought the salt shakers for just $1.25 for 2, so this is a pretty inexpensive project! Then I used gray or blue chalk paint to paint the outside of the shakers.

painting the salt shaker

I used two coats of the paint, letting it dry thoroughly in between. After the second coat was dry I sanded it lightly with 180 grit sandpaper to smooth it out and distress it a little bit. Then I dry brushed a little of the second color of paint just to add some accent to the bottles.

I tied a little bit of twine around the tops of the jars and they were ready for my flowers.
