I found these cute jar projects on Pinterest. Imagine that! Anyway, I got busy!
I ripped up some old clothes instead of buying material and I used old jars from around here, of which I have many. I.um.have.a.thing.um.for.jars!
Actually, I have three fun and easy projects to show you today.
First, the small jars:
I ripped up some old clothes and made some material to work with.
I ended up with some pretty patterns.
Then I got the jars washed, and cut up the scraps to fit the jars.
You are going to get your fingers messy!
But it is fun! Here are the two I did today with this method. I am not finished, they need to be cleaned up on the outside. I’m also going to leave the scrap hanging over the top of the rim. I like it.
I’ll show you them with a candle and all cleaned up next time. They need to dry completely.
Then I got busy on my next project. I need a tall jar for all my paint brushes, so here it is.
I used a material flower cut from my material and then I decoupaged it inside the biggest jar.
I wasn’t sure what color, but today was a pink day.
I actually like it clear, but I wanted to try the painted method. You just pour the paint in and swirl it around and then dry it upside down.
There is a lot of paint that comes out, so I poured that back in the bottle.
Now for my third and final project. Remember when I painted this box white not long ago? I pulled it out and decided to finish it while everything was drying.
So I got busy with yes, pink paint!
I had to figure out what to do with that bad spot so I just hot glued on this flower.
I think it added a little something!
So there ya go, my busy day.
I needed a creative day. I mean, I know I am not a Picasso, but I do love these moments.
I will be making many more of these jars!
On another note, I had to put an I.O.U. into my 52 Week Challenge today. But I will make it good!
I hope you had a wonderful weekend.
