Distressed & Modge Podge Spring Jars

8 Materials
Welcome to our Spring Challenge! Today I will share how I took 2 recycled spaghetti sauce jars and dressed them up for Spring.This project was a trial and error journey, but I believe that I have it figured out now, so I am quite thrilled to be sharing it with you! First I painted the jars and then sanded them. I discovered that I needed to be a little more aggressive with sanding to give them the distressed look that I wanted. I went heavier in different areas to give them an aged appearance.
After the jars were painted and distressed they are all ready now for Modge Podge using fabric.I chose to go with a Spring theme by using blue chalk paint, floral vintage fabric and multi-color ric-rac trim for my Easter table in our Breakfast nook.This project is broken down into 2 Steps.1. Chalk paint/distress jars.2. Modge Podge with fabric jars.
The Paint Project*Cover your work area with paper.*Pour small amount of chalk paint onto paper plate.*Using a paint brush apply one to coats of chalk paint to jar, allowing to dry in-  between applications.*Dry thoroughly before sanding.
The Modge Podge Project Cut measured Fabric and ric-rac with pinking shears .Brush modge-podge onto jar, place fabric and ric- rack on jar, apply more modge -podgeRepeat this process until both textiles are securely in place.Let Dry

    What the heck is a spaghetti jar? When I buy spaghetti it's in a cardboard box with a cellophane window in the box, I've never seen or heard of it in a jar.
