The final steps are dressing them up. I took twine and wrapped it around the outside of the lids and hot glued it on as I went so it would look organic. Above is a better picture of that. Also this is before I shabbied the paint up, so you can see how that looks. Next the ideas are limitless. You can hang letters from them that spell out something, you can hang wood plaques, you can add bows, you can leave them as they are, whatever you like. Play with it and you can change it depending on the season. I choose to use black paint on wood and oil pastels for the words. As for what to put inside, that is endless too. I put three different types of colored beans I bought at the grocery store for very cheap. You can use nuts, you can use candy corn, fake snow, leaves, fighter fish (:)) anything really.
t. It was perfect! So I moved it into the dinning room a brought in all my coffee items. A lot of it is in the drawers to avoid a cluttered look including my french press, grinder, extra coffee pods, and mugs. I even remembered to put a small trash can next to it. I went to TJ MAX or Marshalls, can't remember and picked up this lil standing twiggy thing too. Check out the coffee bar that inspired me here at the Vintage Wren: http://thevintagewren.blogspot.com/2011/08/coffee-bar.html
You may have noticed in the picture before this one that there is a wreath hanging from the window. That I did not get from Pinterest, but I have since pinned it, if it wasn't there already. VERY EASY!!! Actually, it was so easy, my mother in law and my kids made it for me. Take a twig wreath that you can find at any craft store and buy some assorted nuts with shells and a ribbon. FYI, I could not find any nuts with shells in my area...went to 5 stores, crazy! So if you have the same problem, do what I did...go on Amazon and you can buy two HUGE bags of assorted nuts with shells. So all you do is hot glue the nuts all over the wreath and add a ribbon. Ta DA!
