DIY Urn for less

Why urns? Well, I went looking for two urns to decorate my Fall mantel and could not find what I needed. The urns I found were huge and very expensive. So, I set up to make my own since my mantel isn’t very deep and I needed something small and offcourse inexpensive.

I knew if I could use a cheap plastic flower pots for the top, I just needed to find a base. I saw these lime green ice cream bowls for only $1 each at Walmart. I flipped them upside down to see if they would work and literally ran to the garden center to find some pots for the top. The pots I found were $2 each!

I glued them together using E-6000 adhesive and let them dry overnight.

Finally I applied chalkboard spray paint on them and then I lightly brushed on some aqua acrylic paint to give them an aged look.

And they were just what I was looking for! I can’t wait to put some evergreens in them for Christmas! I would love to see your take on DIY Urn for less.
Thanks so much for having me! I hope you will come by and see me at Mom 4 Real!
