DIY Toy Planter, meet DIY lace vase

So I did it. The debate whether to paint ended and I decided to paint my giraffe planter white. (Check out the before pictures here.)

Then just to take it to the next level, I combined two Pinterest inspirations together. Wheee!

A little lace and mod podge later and it turned out exactly like I hoped it would. I love the combination of the silly giraffe with the more formal lace :)

Also, can you believe I've never used Mod Podge before!? It's awesome. I'm in love. There will be more of it on this blog in the future, this you can be sure of.
