Bonus Project: Office Supplies from Overspray!

Ever spray paint something and end up with paint on something else? Of course, cuz it is near impossible to avoid overspray! So, I had an idea while working up a recent project- make the overspray work for you, and create a little less waste. I was trying out Glitter spray paint, which is rather more expensive than other spray paints, and wanted to make use of as much of it as I could to justify the price.  So, while painting a thrift store vase for Valentine’s Day, I laid out some cardstock and vase filler pebbles to catch the overspray and get more bang for my buck.

Waste not, Want not?  Make overspray less wasteful, create something useful!

When the vase was dry I set the cardstock aside to use as embellishment on a few cards, then gathered up a few things to turn those pebbles into some Sparkly New Office Supplies.  Some 12mm button magnets, cheap thumbtacks, and e6000 glue(I love this stuff).  A little dab’ll do ya, stick ’em together, and a couple hours later my bulletin board is Bling-ified!

Waste not, Want not?  Make overspray less wasteful, create something useful!

You know, I’ve never really considered myself a ‘Girly-Girl’ but how can anyone resist a little Sparkle?

Waste not, Want not?  Make overspray less wasteful, create something useful!

So what will you make from your overspray?
