Rubber Band Spray Painted Vase

Today I wanted to share an incredibly simple and cheap project that I've been meaning to do for quite some time - A Rubber Band Spray Painted Vase.  Golf claps, please.
 
I'm sure you've seen this project on Pinterest - possibly here, here or even here.  All you need is a glass vase, some rubber bands and a can of spray paint.  I already had all these items on hand which meant this project was Freeeeee!

As you can see - you just wrap the rubber bands around the vase as seen above.  You can straighten them out and make them flat if you want it to be absolutely perfect.  I did no such thing.  (Guys, I had 2.5 seconds to do this and to be honest, the imperfections haven't bother me, in fact I like it that much more!)
 
I ventured outside and sprayed on one coat of spray paint and DONE!
 
Easy.

Then, I had to decide where I was going to put the vase.  Welp, my fireplace mantel has been looking a wee-bit lonesome since Christmas, so the vase found a perfect home up on the mantel, next to my Hobby Lobby mirror. 
 
I threw in some twigs from my front yard and BOOM!  Free again and done. 
 
What do you think?  It always amazes me at how much of a difference a little paint can make.
