altered muffin tin

A couple of weeks ago I saw the CUTEST idea on the junk drawer blog. Maria had taken a muffin tin and painted it pink, then put votive holders in it. I absolutely loved it, and just had to make one! LOL So I got some votive holders at Micheal's and an old muffin tin at the thrift store. And there it all sat LOL Today I just had a creative bug bite me, and I pulled out the muffin tin! I didn't have any primer though, and I couldn't wait to get some, so I decoupaged it instead. I only put the paper on the top, leaving the bottom and the part where the muffins go (what would you call that? LOL) the original muffin tin silver. Then I added a whole lot of buttons. It still looked plain, so I hot glued some big rickrack around the edge. My mom was cleaning out a bookshelf Sunday, and I offered to take some votives off her hands :) They are the perfect light green for my living room! (they're Spearmint by Partylite) I really love the way it turned out! And it coordinates so well with my sweet birdie tree.

Now, off to the next project! I've already finished part of it, and I'll show you tomorrow evening!
