Two More Cute Jar Upcycling Ideas

I took two peanut butter jars and upcycled them into art supply organizers for my crafting table. Just some ideas to spice up the crafting table and keep everything organized!

You can watch this easy-to-follow step-by-step video or keep scrolling for instructions. Let's get started!

For the first design, I took a cheetah stencil and stamped the entire jar. I did it in sections, letting it dry between each one. Once a section was dry, I would line the stencil back up and continue the pattern. If you can stamp it all the way around on the first go, that's awesome. I'm too messy for that. icon

Once it was completely dry, I added glitter glue to each stamp. I also added glitter glue to the rim of the jar. Let that dry, and I added a piece of white felt to the bottom to finish it off.

For the second jar, I spread some clear tacky glue all over the jar.

I then covered it with a piece of fabric from an old sweater I no longer wear.

Let it dry, and trim the excess off.

Add a piece of felt to the bottom of the jar to give it a polished look.

I added chunky iridescent glitter to the rim. I wanted the fabric to have a shimmer as well. I achieved this by spraying the fabric with hairspray and sprinkling the fine white glitter over that. I then sealed it with one last spritz of hairspray.

I wanted to polish up the area where the fabric meets the rim. I added a pink iridescent ribbon using fabric glue.

Lastly, I added three 3mm clear rhinestones to the front to complete the look.

I used these two jars to store my markers in one and my clay sculpting tools in the other. This craft is fun and easy. It's also great because we are upcycling old jars! I love having these along with my other organizers on my crafting table. They not only keep everything organized while looking fabulous, but they also inspire me as I work. Remember, you can switch up the colors to match your decor! The only thing that takes time is waiting for everything to dry in between steps. Use a fan to spread things up! I hope this inspired you to upcycle some of your old jars!

I already had all the materials in my crafting supplies, so this upcycle didn't cost me a dime. icon
