Jars, Jars, Jars!

1 Material
Well today I was taking it a little easy. I have been collecting and saving jars for a long time now, and today was a perfect day to play with them. Have you ever thought about how many jars you throw in the recycle bin? From spaghetti sauce jars to coffee jars, they can all be reused. I started with a small mason jar, some glitter and mod podge.

I wanted to do something different…something not ordinary. I took some painters tape and wrapped a piece around the jar at a angle.

I then brushed some mod podge on the bottom half of the jar

I then sprinkled some pretty blue glitter on top of the mod podge.

Isn’t that a pretty color! When it was dry, I took off the tape and added a piece of rope around its neck.

or the second jar, I decided to use chalk in a silver color. When it dried, I added a dark chalk wax. I then wrapped a ribbon around it. My friend had given me some shells when she moved.  I love the shell I picked for this one!

Remember those led candles I made over into chunky candles? You can see it here.  Although I love just how they look now, with summer coming, I wanted to make it beachy looking. I love summer!

I had some of the net wire ribbon leftover so I decided to wrap it around the candle.
I had some empty Starbucks coffee bottles, and decided to do something different with those. I chose 2 different colors of craft  and poured about half of the bottle in each. While holding the bottle at a angle, I slowly turned the jar, so the paint inside would cover all the insides of the jar.So, are you ready to see all the jars finished? Here they are:

Ohh, I forgot. I took another small mason jar, added some sand, and a picket fence you can make from Popsicle sticks.

I had so much fun playing with these today. So remember… by DNSUnlocker" target="a652c_1491488824_wwwhometalkcom_387999">  those bottles. Kids would love doing this, and Easter vacation is coming around. My little friend will be coming over next week to do crafts with me. Can’t wait!
And if you are going to take any of these outside, or just want to put a sealer on it…try Rustoleums Clear Coat Sealer in the spray can under $4 at home depot. I use it on all my outdoor crafts. It will last a long time.
