Let's start the day off with some yellow daisies:) Now, how about if I show you a couple of ideas on how to repurpose some vintage finds? First I took a rusty canteen (yep the kind that once held water) and removed the neon orange rope that someone had used as a hanger and replaced it with metal chain. I came up with this for my daisies~
Old canteens are perfect to hold a small bouquet of flowers hanging from a tree. Or, how about sitting on a summer table~
Why not add a little candlelight to reflect off of that rusty metal canteen~
My second repurposed idea is a mason jar oil lamp. All you need is a jar with a lid, a cotton wick and some lamp oil. I made a hole in the top of the zinc lid with a nail and pulled the cotton wick up through the opening. Then I filled 2/3 of the jar with lamp oil and secured the lid. I let the jar sit for about one hour before lighting so the oil would soak up into the wick. You only need about 1/4" of wick sticking out of the top to light. These little mason jar oil lamps are so easy to make and probably cost me about $3.00. I once lined a church walkway using these for a evening wedding. *Tip~a cotton shoelace works great as a small wick.
Then as the sun goes down~
