Kind of scary looking don't you think? I was told they were mouse traps, but they looked too big and too mean for a little mouse. Talk about overkill! I did a little research and found out they're actually gopher traps. Ouch!
I cut and painted two pieces of a pallet board, cleaned the traps, then sprayed them with a matte acrylic sealer. Of course, every gopher trap looks better with a little bling.
The glass tubes were a perfect fit.
They're looking a whole lot better and a lot less intimidating as bud vases. I'm sure the gophers are a lot happier too.
