Updated some thrifted ceramic containers with just a little vinyl

When I was searching for containers for my DIY Color Block Flower pots, I came across these ceramic containers for $0.50 each! I had no idea what I'd use them for, but they seemed really cool and I thought they would be easy to update. I decided that vinyl would be a perfect way to update them. Plus, if I ever get tired of them, I can easily take the vinyl off.
They have now become the home for my little clothes pins, paper clips and washi tape. 
Thrifted and Updated Ceramic Containers with Vinyl Shapes


Ceramic Container

1 || pick out your desired shapes and create a pattern in Silhouette studio (or Cricut program if that's what you use). I simply just used plus signs, hearts and chevrons. Arrange your pattern. If using multiple colors, highlight them in your program. When you're ready to cut, select advanced and then select just one color at a time to cut. 
 I  cut black first, and then when I went to cut the color, I then rearranged the colors pieces so as to save vinyl and use scrap vinyl that I had.  Once it's cut, add on the transfer tape. 
2 || place vinyl onto your container. Then add other colorful shapes into empty spots. 

 And your done!! 

And now for more thrifty goodness!
