Vase/Jar Redo

First, I just want to thank my first 6 followers! Being brand new to blogging, I am so excited to have you! Please stick with me, there are more fun crafts to come! And maybe even some giveaways! If you are here for the first time, THANK YOU for visiting! And now on the the craft ...

I thought it would be fun to do a "before and after" on this one!

I picked this baby up at the thrift store for just $1! So here is the BEFORE: (yuck!)



And after a little paint, distressing, and a quick use of my Cricut here is the AFTER:



I actually used magnetic tape to put the 4 on - it gives it some depth and this way I can change it if I want (which would be a little trickier if I had modge podged it on)

So ... what do you think?
