Day two of the very inexpensive Ikea hacks gifts that you can make for your neighbors. This one is my favorite one. I just love how they turned out. supper easy of course. so lets get started.
You can do this two ways the first takes a little more time but looks better up close the other one looks great as well and if your not looking at them side by side you would never know.
step 2 choose your color. I went with a beautiful pearl paint that I got at Target. However Martha Stewart has a beautiful pear paint as well.
Step 5 tie a bow to the top and your done! because it has a hole in the top it was supper easy to layer the ribbon and them stick in a piece of holly. You could add a little loaf of bread or treat and this would be supper cute. p.s. I also took these photos before I oiled them with butcher block conditioner. Tis the season to be in a hurry and skip this step forgive me please!
