I needed some office decor so of course I turned to Pinterest and found some DIY ideas.
(wonderful iphone quality pics I always forget to use my good camera.)
I made this cute pen/pencil holder, it was super easy and I love the way it turned out.
All you need is a mason jar and paint color of your choice. I added a monogram decal that I made with my Silhouette Cameo and some well I'm really not sure what it is but I want to call it twine.
I just squeezed some paint into the jar and rolled the paint around in the jar using a paint brush to cover all the sides, then I added some more paint and turned the jar upside down for a while until I had a good covering on all sides. This actually took more paint than I expected but I bought a small bottle of paint just for this so it worked out.
After I added the monogram and twine I just left the jar sitting out right side up to dry.
WARNING though I had mine sitting out for like a day and a half then took it to work and put all my pens in it and apparently the paint in the bottom of the jar was thicker and not quite dry so I had teal paint all over my pens and my hands so you want to allow it plenty of time to dry or if you are impatient like me use a hair dryer.
I also made this for my desk after seeing this quote on Pinterest. I just found the frame at Hob Lob and printed out the quote.
That's all I made for my office so far but soon I will post what I have made for my new place.
