Petite Oie Napkin Holder Makeover

 
I got these for 20 cents each at the thrift store.  They're cute but not my 'style' so I decided to give them a makeover.
 First they received a bath of flat, black spray paint.  In case they didn't know who they really are, I decided to remind them that they are in fact, each a "little goose".  This was achieved with a fine-point paint pen.  To complete the ensemble, each received a tiny white bow made from vintage ribbon.

 It's always fun to look past the exterior of something and imagine what it may look like with a coat of paint, a covering of book pages or repurposed for an entirely different use!

  3. How cute they look now...and entirely different! I think everything looks better with a ribbon in a bow! I found a little bunny at the thrift store today that needs a ribbon! Sweet hugs!

  5. What a difference that coat of paint made! They make me smile. Love how you wrote on them, too. Best of all, the price. What a fun gift they would make as well as grace a table full of "quacky" friends. I'd love for you to link them at Share the Shelter. http://ourshelteringtree.blogspot.com
