These light shades sat in the garage all winter waiting for springtime. Early in the season, I visited the garden center to see what I could find. Cheerful pansies caught my eye.
Pot saucers from discarded jar lids
But the saucers look cute. They add a bit more color and detail and they catch water from leaking where it might cause damage.
- Use discarded lids from jars large enough for the globe to sit in and allow space for the drain off.
- Rough up the surface of the lid with a piece of sand paper. This will allow the paint to adhere properly.
- Paint with acrylic paint giving the lids several coats for complete coverage.
- When the paint is dry, apply a coat of gloss clear acrylic sealer.
