diy | metallic sack

When Bri posted about this metallic bag she brought back from Paris, I knew I had to recreate it.
Using two basic supplies most of you have laying around the house – spray paint and a paper bag – you can recreate this funky storage option!  Simply crinkle your bag (or leave it untouched for a more structured look).  Then go crazy with the spray paint, covering the bottom 3/4 of the bag (I had lots of extra gold paint, but other colors would be awesome, especially white for spring).  Let it dry (this takes only a few minutes – the bag absorbs it very well).  Then carefully (it tears easily) fold/roll over the top edge to your desired height.  Fill with whatever your heart desires – scarves (like Bri), office supplies, flowers, paintbrushes, etc.  Or you can display them upside down, because they’re just that awesome!

I think they’d make awesome picnic sacks, party favor bags, or gift bags.  I want to paint 100s of different colors.  What would you use these bags for?

till tomorrow,
Rebecca

    I love this rustic take on a vase. I've become a huge fan of gold lately instead of silver (is this a sign of my age?).

    Oh I love this!

  19. Going to try this! Thanks for sharing such a cool idea. 🙂

  20. Page Gerrick says:

    I think these would be amazing for an herb garden. Cutting off the bottom of the bag and setting the pot inside the bag. Especially for a front porch display. I'm totally doing this after we move to our new place this week! Thanks for the idea, Bec!

  21. Wow this is so simple but really the perfect pop of gold. Way to reuse materials Rebecca!
